Summary
The War Requiem was written for the reconsecration of Coventry Cathedral and was first performed there 30 May 1962. Coventry Cathedral had been destroyed during the Battle of Britain in World War II. Britten was commissioned to write a piece for the ceremony marking the completion of a new cathedral built along side the ruins of the original millennium-old structure. This performance marks to the day the 50th anniversary of the premiere performance at Coventry Cathedral
