The Dunedin Consort lead by Professor John Butt have been awarded Gramophone Magazine's coveted Recording of the Month accolade for their latest recording, a historically informed recreation of the Mozart Requiem's first performance.

Writing in the renowned publication, David Thresher said of the recording "on grounds of performance alone, this is one of the finest Mozart Requiems of recent years".

The review can be read online at Gramophone Magazine and the recording can be heard and purchased via the Linn Records online music store.


Professor John Butt is Gardiner Chair of Music at the University of Glasgow.
