At a price,
This review is from: Britten conducts Britten 3, The Burning Fiery Furnace etc (Audio CD)
Characteristic of Universal's current attitudes. Your image shows a cover describing the church parable 'The Prodigal Son" as "The Prodigal Song". Some ambitious bean counter must be looking foward to the day when these sets will only be available as mp3 downloads. When it comes, who needs to be able to read? So perhaps it's a good idea to get this while you can. The now underrated Jennifer Vyvyan's singing in the Cantata Academica, (for which, her diary records, no-one at the sessions -not conducted by Britten-bothered to thank the artists), would be reason enough, if you have a spare sixty quid (£6 a disc, I think, probably, a bit steep just now).
