Notes & Reviews:

The collective quality and timbre of a children's choir clearly was extremely compelling to Britten. In these moving and powerful works, the Ma¨dchenchor Hannover directed by Gudrun Schro¨fel are joined by members of the percussion ensemble Ensemble S with piano and organ perform a powerful program that brings together the anthem to pacifism, Children's Crusade written for the Save The Children fund with words by Bertholt Brecht along with the comparative innocence of A Ceremony of Carols.
