Review from amazon:
The definitive audio version of Britten s iconic masterpiece, presented in its original artwork but in an exciting new package. Newly remastered from the original tapes, War Requiem is offered on a single 81-minute CD. But excitingly, it is additionally offered herewith in a Blu-Ray Audio fomat, which permits the recording to be heard at 24-bit.

Enthusiasts will be further delighted to have published here a CD featuring Britten in rehearsal at the sessions in January 1963. Producer John Culshaw wired up the Kingsway Hall with microphones and later presented a Limited Edition of 1 copy to Benjamin Britten on the occasion of his 50th Birthday. For musicians, choral singers, would-be conductors and those interested in Britten the musician, this offers exceptional insights into what made him such an outstanding director of his own music.

The accompanying booklet offers full sung texts and a new essay on War Requiem by arranger Christopher Palmer, while Britten scholar Donald Mitchell tells the story of how Decca came to record Britten in rehearsal. Photographs from the Britten archive, session photographs and more besides are included in the generous 76-pager, making this truly a definitive presentation of the ultimate reference recording of this masterpiece.
