Britten War Requiem

Gabrieli began 2013 assembled at Watford Colosseum, UK, for another of our epic large-scale recordings, drawing together musicians from Wroclaw Philharmonic Choir, Gabrieli Young Singers Scheme and Gabrieli Consort & Players as well as many of the UK’s finest freelance musicians. Surrounded by memories – it was only 15 months since we recorded Elijah in that very building – we embarked on another mammoth undertaking with over 350 musicians, including soloists Susan Gritton, John Mark Ainsley and Christopher Maltman, chorus masters Agnieszka Frankow-Zelazny and Greg Beardsell, leader Jacqueline Shave, and a stellar ensemble of players forming the chamber orchestra, including the Carducci Quartet and oboist Nicholas Daniel.
