BRITTENWar RequiemListen


Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem is his enduring statement on the folly and destruction of war. A setting of the Requiem Mass, intertwined with war-poet Wilfred Owen’s descriptions of the horrors of the trenches, it became Britten’s most famous work. With Hong Kong’s own choral forces, this powerful work will be an unmissable event on Hong Kong’s musical calendar.
