 Great early Britten music! March 31, 2012 By Paul Gendron (Pawtucket, RI) See All My Reviews "I really enjoy Benjamin Britten's music. But this was a wonderful surprise! Never heard before so I played it numerous times the minute I received it.I enjoy following his development through the years. I thought I had most of his recordings but this was a pleasant addition. Wonderful music! " Report Abuse
