BRITTEN AND EARLY ENGLISH MUSIC
Lisa Colton, Reader in Musicology at the University of Huddersfield, examines how Benjamin Britten not only brought early English music to the attention of 20th-century audiences through his settings of medieval carol texts and realisations of Purcell songs, but also incorporated this deep knowledge of an historically distant repertoire into his distinctly modern and personal soundworld.
