It was a dream commission for the pacifist composer: write a piece to mark the dedication of Coventry cathedral, which had been devastated by bombs one generation earlier. Britten seized the chance both to commemorate and innovate, bringing together an ancient mass setting with the hard-hitting poetry of Wilfred Owen. Emotionally direct and uncompromising, the work retains a prophetic tone even today.
