00:00 - Britten War Requiem
Britten War Requiem >
Program Notes Archive >
With choruses ranging from the brassy splendor of the “Sanctus” to the phantasmagorical hysteria of the “Libera me,” Britten’s War Requiem is a moving and monumental achievement. But what raises the work to an even greater level is Britten’s inspired combination of the traditional Latin Mass with poems by Wilfred Owen, whose modern poetry illuminates the ancient liturgical text.
Please note that this concert will be performed without intermission. Late arrivals will not be admitted into the hall.
