A Knight at the Opera

(Well, technically a Baron – Baron Britten of Aldeburgh, died 1976.)

Amazon has excelled itself by announcing ‘Benjamin Britten’s new album’. It seems to have exactly the same cast as the 1964 recording of Albert Herring, a goodly proportion of whom are also deceased (of course). Now that’s what I call a revival.

David Harley, career pedant.
