Gramophone Magazine

“Peter Pears has perhaps never done anything finer than his performance of Winter Words...[He] has a voice of unmistakeable individuality and one which he has made responsive to all demands on it. His legato, his florid passages, his soft high notes...his instinct for words and the phrase, all these give unique pleasure to the hearer...Britten's genius for accompaniment is well known; and the recording is of the very highest quality.”
