Britten

Tue 25th June 2013, 8:00pm

Live from St Paul's Cathedral, London

In the 2013 City of London Festival, and marking the 100th anniversary of Benjamin Britten's birth, the vast spaces of St Paul's Cathedral echo to the sound of one his most compelling works. Composed to mark the re-opening of Coventry Cathedral in 1962, rebuilt after the catastrophic damage it suffered in the Second World War, this is one of Britten's most powerful and personal works - a pacifist manifesto which links the Latin words of the Mass for the Dead to the First World War poems of Wilfred Owen.
