War requiem by Benjamin Britten( Sound Recording )
39 editions published between 1963 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,684 libraries worldwide
Just because the definitive recording of Britten's War Requiem has already been made by Britten himself is no reason not to keep recording it. For one thing, the work is simply too affecting and too important to ignore. And for another, the work is too deep and too varied to be encompassed by only one recording, even one so superlative and so sympathetic as the composer's own. Thus, one can have in principle no objections to this live 2007 recording led by Helmuth Rilling. After all, the stalwart German conductor is a highly skilled and deeply experienced choral director who clearly knows his way around monumental scores: his recordings of Bach's Passions are proof of that. But though this is a fine performance with many points to recommend it, it is not a great performance. Rilling does an outstanding job of guiding his forces through the work and a more than adequate job of aiming them toward the work's meaning. But one wants more than "more than adequate" in the War Requiem, and in Rilling's hands, the big moments and its intimate moments fail to strike as profoundly as they ought. The soloists are a mixed lot. Tenor James Taylor and baritone Christian Gerhaher have strong and steady voices, but though soprano Annette Dasch has a lovely voice, she tends to get a bit wobbly above the staff. The chorus of the Festivalensemble Stuttgart and the Aurelius S?ngerknaben are both excellent and they do wonders with the work's huge choruses. But the orchestra of the Festivalensemble, while colorful, does not have quite enough size and weight to bring off the big climaxes. H?nssler's super audio sound is definitely a plus -- the sheer size of the sound is amazing -- but not all that much of an improvement over Decca's fabulous stereo sound for Britten. In sum, then, those who don't know the War Requiem are directed toward Britten's recording, while those who do might consider Rilling's as a third or fourth choice after Hickox's or Shaw's.

Above the dreamless dead : World War I in poetry and comics ( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 667 libraries worldwide
As the Great War dragged on and its catastrophic death toll mounted, poets turned their pens to a world upside down. Many of the Trench Poets, as they came to be called, were soldier-poets dispatching their verse from the front lines. Known for their impassioned portrayals of life and death on the Western Front, these poems because, for much of the world, the literary heart of the Great War. In Above the Dreamless Death, the words of the Trench Poets find dramatic expression and reinterpretation in the hands of some of the greatest cartoonists working today. This daring marriage of poetry and comics, edited by New York Times bestselling editor Chris Duffy, is a moving and illuminating tribute to those who fought and died in World War I.--From publisher description

Poems by Wilfred Owen( Book )
37 editions published between 1920 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 276 libraries worldwide
The poems printed in this book need no preliminary commendations. The author has left us his own fragmentary but impressive Foreword and his Poems, can speak for him, backed by the authority of his experience as an infantry soldier, and sustained by nobility and originality of style. All that was strongest in Wilfred Owen survives in his poems; any superficial impressions of his personality, any records of his conversation, behaviour, or appearance, would be irrelevant and unseemly. The curiosity which demands such morsels would be incapable of appreciating the richness of his work. The discussion of his experiments in assonance and dissonance (of which Strange Meeting is the finest example) may be left to the professional critics of verse, the majority of whom will be more preoccupied with such technical details than with the profound humanity of the self-revelation manifested in such magnificent lines as those at the end of his Apologia pro Poemate Meo, and in that other poem which he named Greater Love

Three poets of the First World War : Ivor Gurney, Isaac Rosenberg and Wilfred Owen by Wilfred Owen( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 214 libraries worldwide
"This indispensable anthology brings together the works of three major poets from the First World War. Ivor Gurney (1890-1937) was a classical music composer and poet who published two volumes of poems, Severn and Somme and War's Embers. Wilfred Owen's (1893- 1918) realistic poetry is remarkable for its details of war and combat. Isaac Rosenberg's (1890-1918) Poems from the Trenches is widely considered one of the finest examples of war poetry from the period. Carefully selected by Jon Stallworthy, a professor emeritus of English at the University of Oxford, these poems comprise a landmark publication that reflects the disparate experiences of war through the voices of the soldiers themselves"--Publisher's description
