Britten's 'War Requiem' with Tynan, Tritschler and Ring from Dublin

Live streamLive stream

Britten's 'War Requiem' is a large-scale, non-liturgical setting of the Requiem. The War Requiem was performed for the consecration of the new Coventry Cathedral, which was built after the original fourteenth-century structure was destroyed in a World War II bombing raid. The traditional Latin texts are interspersed, in telling juxtaposition, with settings of poems by Wilfred Owen, written in World War I.

Performers: Ailish Tynan, soprano, Robin Tritschler, tenor, Gavan Ring, baritone.

The Choristers of St. Patrick's Cathedral. RTÉ Philharmonic Choir. RTÉ Concert Orchestra. RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra. Conductor: David Brophy.
