Notes & Reviews:
Tying in with the centenary of Britten's birth this year, this three-disc compilation set brings together a large selection of early and late unaccompanied choral works, performed by the Finzi Singers and Paul Spicer. This disc includes A Boy was Born, Rejoice in the Lamb, and Choral Dances from Gloriana.
BBC Music Magazine, November 2013
The bulk of Britten's choral output, repackaged at budget level from full-price originals. Wonderfully sympathetic performances, rich recording. A top bargain for the Britten centenary.
