According to the CD content SK features on tracks 57, 58, 59, the “Pie Jesu”, “Libera me” and “In paradisum” from Fauré’s Requiem. We assume that this is incorrect as the baritone usually only features in “Offertoire” and “Libera me” (with “Pie Jesu” being sung by the soprano and “In paradisum” by the chorus).

This recording of Fauré’s Requiem is also available as the complete recording. Click here for details.
