Britten: Albert Herring / Pears, Brannigan, Noble, Fischer, Amit, Pashley, Rex, Cantelo. Britten

Notes & Reviews:

Reissued as part of Decca Opera or the Britten Centenary

The Penguin Guide
Britten's own 1964 recording of his comic opera, Albert Herring, is a delight. Peter Pear's portrait of innocent Albert was caught only just before he grew too old for the role, but it is full of unique touches. Sylvia Fisher is a magnificent Lady Billows, and it is good to have so wide a range of British singers of the 1960s so characterfully presented. The recording, made in the Jubilee Hall, remains astonishingly vivid.
