This superb collection, released in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Britten's birth, features all three of the The Sixteen's celebrated Britten recordings. Arguably the most celebrated British composer of the 20th century, Benjamin Britten possessed a formidable talent and distinctive style. His remarkable career spanned over 40 years, and this collection of choral works features a fascinating selection of music from throughout his life.
