Not least among David Hill's current roles is that of principal conductor of Yale Schola Cantorum, one of America's foremost chamber choirs. Here, they together contribute a recording of the Fauré Requiem close in spirit to the composer's intimate, liturgical original.

"[The arrangement[ works extremely well, with the two strings bringing out the subsidiary lines that were always a feature of [Faure's] writing. The singing is splendid. The baritone soloist Edmund Milly has just the cantor-like voice Faure specified, with no boom or bluster, and the top choral parts are clear and bell-like." BBC Music

"The real glories of the disc come with the handful of rarely heard choral miniatures which are, without exception, absolute gems. Hill's overall approach is to produce a smooth sounds rather than present significant interpretations of the music, and this is an approach that serves these shorter pieces particularly well." Gramophone
