War Requiem

Tune in on Sunday at 1 pm on WRTI 90.1 FM, and Monday at 7 pm on WRTI HD-2, as our Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert broadcast brings us a single, remarkable work, especially relevant for our troubled times—Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem.

Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem is unusual—in form, in scope, and in message. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, the Latin Mass for chorus and orchestra is interspersed by English poetry about the brutality of war.
