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.
