Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Immaculately presented, with copious musical examples. It stands as a prime example of how one might go about a critical analysis of a work, moving back and forth between historical, analytical, and expressive interpretations...a major contribution to Britten studies, but its rich ideas have resonance far beyond this field, and deserve closer attention. MUSIC & LETTERSWinner of the Sue Thomson Foundation Publishing Award for 2006. From the citation: This monograph (is) a ground-breaking case study of the author's work on the successful integration of words and music. The judges suspect that it is rare to find typographical skills of a high level combined with musicological expertise.
