Benjamin Britten knew exactly what he wanted to do with this music. Despite the complexity of what he wanted and the fact that this music has need to express both a somber message there is a celebratory note as he observes the rebirth of the end of a horrific war and a whiff of hope after a nightmarish struggle. He led some of the best performers of the day to a triumphant performance. Soloists (and what soloists they were) orchestra and choir all are excellent. Fun to listen to his comments while conducting practices which illustrate how important it was to get something like perfection done. Perfection or not it is close and a fitting honor for poet Wilfrid Owen and all the victims of the war.
