About this Recording

BRITTEN: Folk Song Arrangements, Vol. 2 (English Song, Vol. 13)

Benjamin Britten was throughout his life drawn to folk-song, possessing a special gift for wordsetting and vocal writing. This second disc of the complete folk song arrangements focuses on the orchestral versions and the volumes for guitar and harp. This release and its companion (Naxos 8.557220-21), both previously available on Collins Classics, present all the known folksongs and include ten world première recordings of arrangements published as recently as 2001.
