To commemorate the end of the First World War, we present two contrasting and poignant works. The momentous War Requiem, the most profound statement of Britten’s pacifist convictions. With vocal lines reflecting the anguish of war, and orchestrally created sounds of firing guns and cannon, the tension is palpable. Contrast this with the clarity and beauty of Vaughan Williams’ Lark Ascending, written as the war began, evoking the sense of freedom for which millions gave their lives.
