Perfect Pairing

Study score for Britten's War Requiem with words from the Missa pro defunctis and the poems of Wilfred Owen.

Commissioned to write a work to celebrate the rebuilding of the bomb-damaged Coventry Cathedral in 1962, Britten used the opportunity to write a large-scale composition embodying his deeply held pacifist and humanitarian beliefs. The result, the War Requiem, is a timeless expression of the brutality and inhumanity of war.

Now published in The Masterworks Library - landmark 20th century works from the Boosey & Hawkes catalogue available for the first time in full score format at pocket score prices with introductory notes, illustrations and photographs. Ideal for students, conductors, performers, libraries, CD collectors and general music enthusiasts.

"This score is my first product from Masterworks Series. It is beautifully printed and edited - although the layout of the score wasn't engraved with computer. Pages are tight and wiry. Highly recommended for conductors and music lovers!"
