Notes & Reviews:

“Peter Pears has perhaps never done anything finer than his performance of Winter Words. Each year his voice has been growing a fuller, more flexible instrument, and he uses it here with consummate art. Britten's genius for accompaniment is well known ; and the recording is of the very highest quality.” – Grammophone
