John Bridcut in conversation with Petroc Trelawny

Saturday 8th November at 6pm in the Cathedral Chapter House

This introduction to Benjamin Britten's War Requiem explores both the text and the music of the work that, more than any other, cemented Britten's international reputation. The composer conceived it as a European project, and yet much of its strength derives from the rarity of the requiem in the British tradition, the particular British responses to the slaughter of the First World War, and of course the powerful English poetry of Wilfred Owen.

Tickets £10, must be bought in advance as Cathedral Chapter House has a limited capacity, from Hall For Cornwall, 01872 262466 www.hallforcornwall.org.uk

Britten's War Requiem was commissioned to mark the consecration of Coventry's new Cathedral in 1962. Such vast resources are needed in this work that performances are rare, and it has not been heard live in Cornwall for 27 years. Britten uses Wilfred Owen's WWI poetry juxtaposed with Latin words from the Requiem Mass. It is an unforgettably powerful musical experience, and a profoundly moving commemoration to victims of war.
