I very much enjoyed joining the Philharmonia Chorus to sing in this performance of the War Requiem, and was reminded what a spectacular piece of music it is. The final duet, the setting of Wilfred Owen's 'Strange Meeting' between two dead enemy soldiers, is spine-chilling, and as a consequence the 'In paradisum' that follows is so unsettling and disturbing - no reassurance of heavenly peace here.
In terms of the performance, here are the reviews.
