Marvellous collection, I enjoy listening to songs I have not heard for 40 years, "Friday Afternoons" and many of the folk songs, as well at the larger scale choral works. Britten seems to get better as time moves on

A wonderful collection of music that feels at the heart of everything Britten was about. Excellent recordings, often with the composer and his muse and partner Pears. Definitive.

Background hum on all CDs. So disappointing. The definitive, great Decca recordings of Britten's vocal masterpieces, and not really possible to listen.

Extensive collection of choral and vocal works (although some such as the Church Parables appear on a companion set called Works for Stage and Screen). Largely Decca recordings involving Britten himself but gaps filled in with other conductors and accompanists. Biggest disappointment is that the rehearsal sequence for the War Requiem has been left off - you really need to hear this to get an idea of Britten at work with a choir and orchestra. So minus one star for this.
