Benjamin Britten

...For all but the most jaded soul these twenty-four settings must surely trigger mega-levels of listening satisfaction.

Best of all, Melba's soloist, tenor Steve Davislim and composer/accompanist Simone Young revive the era of bygone country life Britten has evoked with such unerring precision.'s Melba Recordings' release (complete with all lyrics) that has now nosed into the upper echelon of Britten folksong recordings...

I would simply add that Davislim, Young and Melba Recordings have (remarkably) excelled themselves; this release is worth several times its weight in gold.
