Notes & Reviews:

Britten's large catalog of choral works spans the whole of his compositional career, much of his music in this genre employing sacred texts that were derived from contemporary poets. They inspired Britten to fashion some of his most radiant scores, his unique use of boys' voices providing such a distinctive and exciting tonal quality that it has come to characterize British church music of the twentieth century.
