      Contains the entire music score...
      Cost...! Very expensive... The Opera Choruses compendium (350 pages) I purchased recently was less than half the price of Britten's War Requiem (180pages)...! I know 2018 is a special year for Britten's masterpiece, but I fail to see how the publisher can justify its excessive price tag...!

      I sang in a War Requiem performance many years ago using the choral score, and it made singing this difficult piece twice as hard. The full vocal score is WELL worth the extra money and I would recommend it unreservedly.
