BRITTEN, Benjamin

Choral works & opera for children

Abstract: In celebration of Benjamin Britten’s 100th anniversary, EMI Classics releases Britten: Choral Works & Opera for Children. This special collection of works by Benjamin Britten showcases the way in which the composer’s love of poetry formed a crucial basis for much of his choral and operatic music; inspired by poets such as Auden, Smart and Hopkins, Britten crafted their works into compelling narratives. His imaginative text setting and the artful melodies of works such as Rejoice in the Lamb, A Ceremony of Carols and the iconic War Requiem have captivated listeners throughout the 20th century and beyond. Among the world-class performers featured in the collection are Robert Tear, Janet Baker, Elisabeth Söderström and the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge.
