Britten ‘Who are these Children’

I’m always amazed by the variety and depth of Britten’s writing for tenor, and there always seems to be more works to discover.

I spent the summer learning and performing Les Illuminations and Seven Sonnets for the North Yorkshire Moors Chamber Music Festival (run by the nicest people) and am now learning ‘Who are these Children’ for a recital in the Red House on November 9th. The writing is stunning and it’s surprising these aren’t better known. Time to work on my Scottish pronunciation…
