More Info:

The vinyl cut at Abbey Road Studios is the first LP release of the secret recording of Britten's rehearsals for the War Requiem since the sole pressing gifted by Decca to Britten on his 50th birthday in November 1963. The expansive booklet includes excerpts from John Culshaw's autobiography Putting the Record Straight; reminiscences from three of the original 1963 Decca recording crew; technical notes; detailed essays on the War Requiem; and rare and new photographs.
