Notes & Reviews:
BBC Music Magazine
Gracefully patrician in tone but always perceptive, Pears, with Britten's acute accompaniment, explores a wide range of British song from Butterworth to Tippett.
To Daffodils is exquisitely sung, and The merry month of May is a tour de force spectacularly brought off by Viola Tunnard" ... "The record is completed by a splendid scena by Richard Rodney Bennett, the accompaniment for cello alone, and three prose texts by John Donne set by Priaulx Rainier for unaccompanied voice. Peter Pears sings these with marvellous intensity and understanding, and Joan Dickson's cello playing in Tom O' Bedlam is very good indeed.
