Notes & Reviews:

"Langridge has become the leading Britten tenor in recent years and has recorded much of Britten's music. He has a quite individual sound, pointed, a bit nasal, a bit hard, a bit of a beat in long sustained under pressure, but just the right sound for Britten's music. Especially impressive are his interpretive powers and clarity of diction. Bedoford's piano accompaniments are also a treasure." - Parsons, American Record Guide
