War Requiem 2013

In January 2013 we once again assembled our Anglo-British forces of musicians young and old to record at Watford Town Hall. The repertoire on this occasion was Britten’s War Requiem. All we needed was a symphony orchestra (for which Gabrieli Players were joined by musicians from the UK’s most eminent orchestras), a chamber orchestra, a large chorus (incorporating Gabrieli Consort, Gabrieli Young Singers Scheme and Wroclaw Philharmonic Choir), a chamber choir, a boys choir (Trebles of New College Choir, Oxford), three soloists (Susan Gritton, John Mark Ainsley and Christopher Maltman), a conductor, a producer, an engineer and a small army of canteen staff.
