My Collection of GMdm Recordings

Here is the listing of my 51 different recordings (as of mid-year 2006) of the Berlioz Grande Messe des morts (also known as his Requiem). The catalogue number in each case is specifically that of the release that I personally own. Enjoy!

Many people assisted me in determining the dates of recording sessions. For the most part, they are already thanked on the Acknowledgements page of my thesis. However, research is never-ending, and I would like to give my special thanks to Michael H. Gray at Voice of America for determining the exact dates of some of these. This includes those of the very first recording of the work (conducted by Jean Fournet), for which Mike even sent me photocopies of the recording logs!
