I loved the article about the Veterans Day remembrance of World War I and the celebration of the Rupert Brooke poetry with newly composed music by Ryan McCarty ’14 (On the Campus, Dec. 4). One additional lovely touch might have been a brief selection from Benjamin Britten’s War Requiem, which sets the words of another war poet, Wilfred Owen, to some astonishing music. Last year was Britten’s centenary, which also argues for his inclusion. It could have made a wonderful remembrance perfect.
