Live recording of Britten’s five canticles, with the extended version of Canticle III (The heart of the matter).

 

"Both sets of performances are very fine. Those from Oxford around Norman are easier on the ear … The Oxford performance has a wider-ranging essay by recent Britten biographer Paul Kildea … Both discs are well recorded."
