Metropolitan Opera tenor Matthew Polenzani had the work's only solo moment, in the ''Sanctus.' His voice is vibrant and very present, and the exposed high notes peal forth with intense concentration, like a ray of sun focused through a magnifying glass. He didn't make the traditional distant, angelic effect; instead he offered something human and compelling."--Richard Dyer, Boston Globe, reviewing a performance of the Berlioz Requiem by the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, conducted by Rafael Fruehbeck de Burgos
