New Warner Classics recording of Britten's War Requiem

From the EMI Classics site:
2013 marks the 100th birthday of Benjamin Britten and Warner Classics pays tribute to this key figure of 20th century music with the release of a brand new recording of his War Requiem, with a stellar line up of soloists – Anna Netrebko, Ian Bostridge and Thomas Hampson. 
Considered to be Britten’s crowning choral work, and for some possibly the pinnacle of his entire output, it was commissioned for the festival marking the consecration of the new cathedral at Coventry.
