Any thoughts on their recording of Mozart's Requiem?

Mackerras is great for Mozart in general, for example this one is amazing and my favorite version of the late symphonies:

 

Linn Records - Mozart Symphonies 38 - 41

 

The requiem is ok, but I wouldn't particularly recommend it. To my ear, it lacks the necessary drama and weight.

Given the competition in this repertoire (including references such as Krips, Klemperer, Abbado and Jacobs), your strong recommendation piqued curiosity: many thanks!

+1. (Though I actually like to play this version of Mozart's Requiem when I want to hear it "in the background" without getting too absorbed by it.)
