'Sacred and Profane' reviews

'Britten returns to simple madrigalian devices with supreme confidence and dexterity.'
Gillian Widdicombe, Financial Times, 16 September 1975

'Some are devoutly religious, others deal passionately with unhappy love or lovingly with nature; there is one that grimly, drastically ponders death.  The deceptively simplice sparseness of the works fits ideally to Britten's characteristic lightness of touch, to his elusive artfulness that never turns academic or doctrinaire.'
Peter Stadlen, The Daily Telegraph, 17 September 1975
