There are many recordings of the Requiem but this link will take you to a recording of the version that we will be singing in English, with piano duo. The album is available to purchase as a CD and as a download, but can also be found on Spotify and other streaming services.
You Tube is also a great way of hearing different performances from choirs all over the world.

This is a BBC recording. (The music starts 9 minutes in).
Susan writes: “In an ideal world we would all practise at home as well as at rehearsal but that is easier said than done for many of us.

You can try a few and see which suits you best. The links below are only a sample of what’s available:”
