    I just reminded myself today how magnificent of a work Duruflé's Requiem (Op. 9) is. Pair it with Fauré's Requiem (Op. 48) and there's little need for anything beyond that. There's something special about these French composers and their deeply moving approach to the genre. Listening to them truly feels like a personal journey and it readily makes me question Mozart with his opus K. 626 as the exemplary requiem mass. I'm not going to debate that though, this genre has several different, sublime, virtuosic works. Beyond Duruflé's, I recommend to everyone interested in requiem masses the respective compositions from aforementioned Fauré and Mozart, as well as Brahms, Berlioz and Verdi. These six opera have enough variety and beauty to keep one busy for a long time. Cheers!
