Notes & Reviews:

Britten's 'War Requiem' is a setting of the traditional Requiem text and also contains settings of the verses of World War I poet Wilfred Owen "Shafer's tempos approximate Britten's, with never a feeling of rushing or dragging, carefully observing the musical and emotional climaxes... this is a rapturous performance, a remarkable recording... one of the finest recordings of the work available." - American Record Guide
