Three Hop ensembles combine to perform Britten’s War Requiem

19/20 Hop Ensemble

English composer Benjamin Britten was commissioned to write his for the 1963 consecration of a London cathedral destroyed in Nazi blitzes.The 50-year-old English composer poured into the work the angst of the first half of the 20th century, creating a masterpiece of emotional and moral depth and musical ingenuity. Combines the Latin Requiem Mass with the wartime poetry of British writer Wilfred Owen, the work is a moving prayer for peace that sounds every bit as relevant today as it did when first performed more than 50 years ago.
