Britten’s five canticles are rich in musical detail and emotional content. Presented by the Aldeburgh Connection, featuring Benjamin Butterfield, Daniel Taylor, Brett Polegato, James Sommerville, Judy Loman, Stephen Ralls and Bruce Ubukata.

"The excellent Toronto-based group Aldeburgh Connection offers a sensitive, warm performance, paired with Britten’s setting of three Purcell hymns, featuring Benjamin Butterfield, Daniel Taylor and Brett Polegato as the heartfelt vocal soloists. - Rating  ****"
Jon Kaplan - Now Magazine


"The five Canticles reveal the depth of this composer’s great settings for voice, from 1947 to 1974… What remains constant is the inventiveness, the subtle lyricism and the rapt intensity of the vocal lines. Here was an extraordinary master of the singer’s art… It must be said that the Canadian artists make this music entirely their own, singing with vocal ease and interpretive authority… This disc also includes three divine hymns by Henry Percell…"
