Notes & Reviews:

This second volume of Britten orchestral songs features his two arguably best-known works in the genre, together with a major vocal work from the very last years of the composer's life. This music represents the distillation of a lifetime's expertise in operatic composition and is an extraordinary example of Britten's immense talent.
