War Requiem

 

No work of this composer has had such a stirring effect on the ears of most concert-goers than his “War Requiem.” Composed in the early 1960’s for the dedication of bombed out Coventry Cathedral’s new dedication, it has retained its place as perhaps the most important statement about war in the 20th century.
