5.0 out of 5 stars STILL REMAINS THE BEST
This was the piece of music that first really turned me on to classical music, listening to the very first performance from Coventry Cathedral on a small tranny radio. What I failed to realise then was that this massive impact was achieved by brilliant structural simplicity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Britten's War Requiem (Decca) - where was Galina Vishnevskaya ?, 26 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Britten: War Requiem (DECCA The Originals) (Audio CD)
