Overview

The recorded legacy of the great English tenor Peter Pears is substantial and wide-ranging. It embraces Baroque repertory and Elizabethan songs as well as a vast amount of twentieth-century English music and German Lieder. This six-CD anniversary collection features Pears in a wide selection of this repertory and it also charts his career as a recording artist from landmark recordings such as the first recording of Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings (made in 1944) through to Britten's Canticle V - The Death of St Narcissus (composed in 1974), recorded near the end of his career in 1976. Many of the recordings appear on CD for the first time. It includes a deluxe 28-page booklet with an essay on Pears by George Hall. From the Label
