5.0 out of 5 stars Folk Song Arrangements - Britten 30 April 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Volumes I and II of this set represent Britten at his best in this genre. And the range is huge. If you think you know British Folk Songs - think again. I had to !

First class performance by first class artists - includes some less well known songs. Good to see it back on lists.

4.0 out of 5 stars This second volume of Britten's folksongs is more fun 24 Jun 2006
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
In 1995 Collins Classics issued a comprehensive 3-CD set of Britten's many folksong arrangements. Now that they're on Naxos, you can buy all 52 solo songs on two CDs or this one, a single CD devoted to various orhcestrations, choral arrangements, and other oddments.

Frankly, even though this catch-all is considered an addendum, I found it more fun than the more famous solo songs. Britten had lots of interesting things to say via the orchestra, and the varied textures allow for moe diversity than piano alone. I'm not fond of boy choirs, but Britten was, so we get a handful of those settings, which are either charming or twee depending on your viewpoint.

As before, Philip Langridge bears the brunt of almost all the songs--they were originally set for Britten's life partner, tenor Peter Pears. Langridge's lyric voice is easier to listen to than Pears's, but he's not nearly the artist. For all that, everything about this CD, including the conducting by Simon Joly, adds to the listener's pleasure. The only defect is that for the orchestral songs the singre is placed much too far back.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent source for Brittens' Folk Song Collection 28 May 2007
By Priscilla Stilwell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The price is right, and the quality is good (notice I didn't say great, but the price brings it back to a "5"). In my opinion, you can never go wrong with Britten.
