Product description

Product Description

Following their acclaimed recordings of Berlioz's Grande Messe des Morts and Mendelssohn's Elijah, Paul McCreesh has once again assembled the mass forces of Gabrieli Consort & Players and Wrocaw Phiharmonic Choir to record one of the iconic masterpieces of the 20th century oratorio repertoire. The work reflects Britten's long-held and committed pacifist beliefs. Composed to mark the consecration of a new Cathedral in Coventry, Britten combines the Latin text of the Missa pro Defunctiswith nine poems by the First World War poet Wilfred Owen, which provide a moving (and frequently uncomfortable) commentary on the liturgical text.


Best Choral Album, BBC Music Magazine Awards 2014 --BBC Music Magazine

"Tenor John Mark Ainsley and baritone Christopher Maltman are compellingly eloquent Owen surrogates, well matched in bot the naive bravado of "Out there, we've walked quite friendly up to Death" and the eerie, horrified hush of the altered-ending tale of Abram and Isaac." --Patrick Dillon, Opera News, February 2014
