This review is from: Britten: War Requiem, 1962 (Gabrieli Consort/McCreesh) (Audio CD)
Having listened exclusively to the Britten recording of his own work for the last twenty years, I was sceptical about forking out £15 for another recording. I am glad I did: this is a quite brilliant recording. The sound is wonderful. The attention to detail makes it a captivating recording - it possibly also reveals gaps in the Brittem recording. Most of all, it navigates the transition from menace to pathos, and back again, in a wholly convincing way.
I vote this my own classical music disc of the year.
