 Heavenly July 1, 2012 By Gary Mitchell (Independence, KS) See All My Reviews ""The Company of Heaven" uses scripture, poetry, various passages concerning angels, and of course the specially composed music of Benjamin Britten. All this was used for a radio broadcast originally and only now is resurrected and performed for us, along with some "lost" music from Britten's "Paul Bunyan." Having both is a mix of secular and religious, for sure, but Britten's music from that period already shows marks of genius. Excellent performances all around and a spiritual experience for those who believe." Report Abuse
