Britten - War Requiem archiveBenjamin Britten's War Requiem was composed in 1961 for the consecration of Coventry Cathedral - newly rebuilt following its destruction in the Second World War. Britten took as his inspiration the words of young English war poet, Wilfred Owen, himself killed in action on 4 November 1918, just days before the armistice. The War Requiem profoundly weaves together nine of Owen's most poignant poems including Anthem for Doomed Youth, Futility and Strange Meeting, with the traditional Latin mass.
Performers Susan Bullock (soprano), Philip Langridge (tenor), Neal Davies (baritone).
Music Benjamin Britten. Company National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Conductor Richard Hickox. Company London Symphony Chorus. Company Tiffin Boys' Choir.
