    More Britten.



    followed by



    However many more recordings of the War Requiem come out (and there are quite a few really good ones) this first with Britten at the helm will always have a special place in the hearts of collectors of a certain age. Some carped at the contribution of Vishnevskaya, who was originally scheduled to sing at the premiere, but was not allowed to travel to the UK by the Soviet authorities, meaning that Heather Harper stood in for her. Well, I've always liked her thrillingly dramatic singing. Pears and Fischer-Dieskau are also superb.

    An irreplaceable recording.
