BRITTEN War Requiem

An unmissable performance of this exceptionally powerful work, in honour of Britten's centenary and performed alongside the Oxford Bach Choir. As a pacifist, Britten relished the opportunity to explore the futility of war, while paying tribute to its dead. The work combines texts from the Latin Requiem Mass with poems by the First World War poet Wilfred Owen. The result is music of haunting power and exceptional beauty. Not to be missed.
