Produktinfo

Britten's five Canticles are marvellously vivid, intensely dramatic works. Although they were not designed to be performed together - they span virtually his whole career, from the early 1940s to the mid-1970s, and were composed for a variety of forces and singers - they form a remarkably effective sequence. Each is in some way inspired by religion and takes the form of an extended song, scena, miniature cantata or even, in the case of Abraham and Isaac, virtually a mini opera. All five were composed for the tenor voice of Peter Pears, and chart the personal and creative relationship between Britten and his most important muse.
