Britten, B.: War Requiem (Gritton, Ainsley, Maltman, Wroclaw Philharmonic Choir, Oxford New College Choir, Gabrieli Consort and Players, McCreesh)
Signum Classics: SIGCD340

Paul McCreesh has assembled the massed forces of Gabrieli Consort & Players and Wroclaw Phiharmonic Choir to record Britten's War Requiem, one of the iconic masses of the 20th century. The work reflects Britten's long-held and committed pacifist beliefs and combines the Latin text of the Missa pro Defunctis with nine poems by the First World War poet Wilfred Owen, which provide a moving commentary on the liturgical text.
