Gramophone Magazine

June 1998

“Adrian Thompson sings throughout with the musicality and intelligence we expect from a lifelong advocate of the composer's music. His phrasing is consistently sensitive and subtle to the smallest details of Britten's writing...Lloyd-Jones and the Bournemouth Sinfonietta provide alert, beautifully balanced support throughout”
