    Britten’s War Requiem is a highly emotive work combining English poetry written by a World War I casualty William Owen, with the familiar text of the Latin Mass. It also demonstrates that Benjamin Britten was perhaps not just thinking about the losses sustained by his own country, but for all mankind.   The Missa Brevis in D, Op. 63 is a setting of the Mass completed by Benjamin Britten on Trinity Sunday, It was first performed at London's Roman Catholic Westminster Cathedral on 22 July of the same year. The piece is set for three-part treble choir and organ.
