Nice article, but I don't see the hook fact in the source cited (I see it in relation to War Requiem, but not Academica) — Crisco 1492 (talk) 01:18, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
It's on page 4 of Cooke: "Britten wrote out the full text of the cantata�with metrical stresses carefully marked�in one of the old exercise books he had retained from his days at preparatory school...[Intervening text refers to the serialist structure of Academica as discussed in previous paragraph]...He subsequently used the same exercise book when planning the textual structure of the War Requiem".

Thanks, got it. New enough, long enough, interesting hook, cited, referencing is good, no images to check, no close paraphrasing found. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 03:08, 5 August 2013 (UTC)
