Notes & Reviews:

"Anthony Rolfe Johnson gives wonderful performances of two of Britten's finest song cycles and the ardent Canticle I, consistently beautiful in vocal quality, and almost miraculous in their integration of clear, expressive diction with a smooth legato line; the piano parts are perfectly coloured and weighted by Graham Johnson... This bargain-price reissue, with excellent notes and good sound, deserves a place in every serious collection." ***** -BBC Music

'Wonderful performances of two of Britten's finest song cycles, consistently beautiful in vocal quality, and almost miraculous in their integration of clear expressive diction. Deserves a place in every collection' (BBC Music Magazine)
