Benjamin Britten's War Requiem

Britten War Requiem
Benjamin Britten was commissioned to write his War Requiem for the re-consecration of Britain’s Coventry Cathedral, which was destroyed by a Nazi bomb raid in 1940. The lifelong pacifist with deeply humanitarian beliefs had been thinking about writing a work that addressed the bloodshed and sorrow of war for many years, and this work provided his most powerful demonstration of the horror, devastation, futility, and utter waste of war.
