Britten War Requiem - Historic Performance

Back in 1988, BFC took part in a historic performance of the Britten War Requiem in the city of Diksmuide in Flanders, Belgium. By the end of the World War 1, Diksmuide had been reduced to rubble. It was rebuiilt during the 1920s.

The concert, conducted by our founding Music Director, Laszlo Heltay, was in the main church in the city, on 11th November 1988 - exactly 70 years since the end of World War 1. It was broadcast live on Belgian television, and you can see a recording of it here on YouTube.
