Britten - War Requiem - Washington Chorus Shafer Britten: War Requiem/Washington Chorus (2 CDs!)

Winner of the Grammy® Award for Best Choral Performance!

Coventry Cathedral had been destroyed during the Battle of Britain in World War II. The work received immediate critical acclaim and was hailed as a masterpiece. A life-long pacifist, Britten wrote his Requiem as a statement against the horrors of war. In it, he intersperses the traditional Latin Requiem texts with works by Wilfred Owen, a poet who died in battle in World War I.

Clemens non Papa: Requiem and Motets - Tudor Choir - Douglas Fullington Clemens: Requiem & Motets/Tudor Choir

The Tudor Choir adds to its critically acclaimed collection of recordings with this new CD of music by Renaissance composer Jacob Clemens non Papa (c.1515-c.1555). Clemens composed in all of the expected genres of his time. Much of his music is infused with a personal quality that differs from the generally abstract nature of much Renaissance sacred music. The music on this disc is a survey of his Latin-texted sacred polyphony, including his intimate Requiem, plus a Magnificat setting and a sampling of motets. The pieces chosen for this recording reveal texts that portray such themes as relationships, family, and remembrance, and therefore demonstrate the unusual "personal" quality to be found in Clemens' works.
