Filled a need,
This review is from: Britten: War Requiem (Audio CD)
It's fine. Although a lot of folk think it's great it's not my favourite. But I needed it as I have to sing it at the Three Choirs Festival!

How did it go? Do you feel any warmer towards the music now?

I bought it because I had to sing in the War Requiem at the Worcester Three Choirs Festival earlier this year.
Do you want my copy?

Mr. T. Y. W. Kent says:
Mike, basically you don't like the piece. The clue is 'I HAD to sing it'. Unfortunately, fair enough. Britten is an acquired taste but it isn't really a review for those of us who like his music. e.g. I dislike Death in Venice deeply and would never put a review of it here due to my own prejudice. As for the 2nd Viennese school or Stockhausen, I start to splutter. I too hope that your concert went well.
