Britten War Requiem, Op. 66 (78’)

In celebration of Benjamin Britten’s 100th birth anniversary in 2013, the SSO presents the War Requiem, a large-scale 20th century masterpiece requiring two orchestras, two choirs , three soloists. The work includes the setting of nine poems by the anti-war poet Wilfred Owen. An instant success, the work was written for the reconsecration of Coventry Cathedral after the 14th-century original was destroyed during the Second World War.
