Digital Booklet: Britten: War Requiem. The Requiem is as poignant today as when it was written and performed and if history continues to repeat itself, very likely the work will continued to be performed when there is such a stringent dichotomy of opinion about war and the pity of war. In 1958, Britten was commissioned to write a piece for the consecration of England's rebuilt Coventry Cathedral - which was all but destroyed by the German Luftwaffe in WWII
