While Pears's recording of Britten folk song arrangements with piano is well known, a beautiful recording he made of songs with harp, featuring Osian Ellis, is altogether rarer and exhumed here on CD for the first time. Ellis's Decca recording of the Suite for Harp also makes its first appearance, as does the Wilbye Consort's of Sacred and Profane and other Britten choral works to make up two very well-filled CDs.

A Decca Eloquence CD set.

Artists: Peter Pears (tenor), Osian Ellis (harp), Wilbye Consort.
Composers: Britten.
Tracks:
BENJAMIN BRITTEN (1913-1976)
