Two great masterpieces of sacred music in one volume: Requiem Mass (Grande messe des morts), Op. 5, and Te Deum, Op. 22. Requiem unrivaled in the grandeur of its conception, calling for huge orchestral forces and a chorus of at least 200. The Te Deum contains some of Berlioz's most inspired and original ideas.
