Notes & Reviews:

Long patronized by the music establishment as an amateur because of his late start in music study, Michael Tippett (1905-1998) was to become in later years one of the most influential and respected British composers. "A masterpiece, in short, and one that can be listened to again and again without exhausting its exuberant generosity." - Gramophone
