"The public, very concentrated, full of attention, in an almost pious silence, lets itself be invaded by this music which has transcended the schools and radiates with beauty. Leaving Pleyel, one has only one desire: to listen again to this Requiem as soon as possible."
(Forum Opera, 1/8/10)
"Within itself, the work harbors a power and a shimmer, and to tell the truth, a seduction, which, until now, contemporary music has seemed to avoid like the plague. Some post war serial composers must be turning in their graves... Especially since the servants of this privileged moment revealed fully its outstanding musicality."
(Scènes Magazine - 1/11/10)
"The composer Thierry Lancino has shuffled the cards of the Requiem genre, with the complicity of the writer Pascal Quignard. The result is quite taking. As little dogmatic as the text used, Thierry Lancino's music scans a vast esthetical field without ever sounding hybrid."
(Le Monde, 1/10/10)
"What strikes us first in this new score, is its extreme freedom in the writing and its great variety of tone. The vocal writing, often opulent is remarkably defended by Radio France Chorus."
(Concert Classique, 1/11/10)
"This eighty minute long score distinguishes itself by its sincere fervor, its sens of drama, its capacity to handle large masses of sounds."
(Le Figaro, 1/11)
