Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2006 - Music - 169 pages
0 Reviews
The importance of "the things spiritual" in Britten's work has long been ignored. In his book Graham Elliott examines this importance in his analysis of the composer's choice and treatment of subjects, and his use of musical influences-- especially plainsong--which have a direct association with spirituality.
