This British conductor, who directed the first performance of Britten's War
Requiem and was Music Director of the English Opera Group and a guest conductor
at Covent Garden and Sadler's Wells, among other operatic engagements, has
died.  He was a familiar name to me from numerous performances on BBC Radio 3.
The Guardian obituary by Philip Reed has some interesting stuff about the
genesis of the War Requiem premiere:
