These works show some of the breadth and range of Britten’s choral writing, embracing the masque from his opera Gloriana, his own take on the English part song tradition in Five Flower Songs, and his last work for unaccompanied voices, Sacred and Profane. The latter sets medieval texts described herein as ’a mixture of the devotional and the rumbustiously secular’.
