After a bit of a fanfare a few months back, it is now time for me to get cracking on the Around Britten in 80 Songs project in earnest!
This week I am sending a song or a group of songs to people who have already expressed an interest in taking part in the project. Many of these will be encountering the music of Britten for the first time. They will then document how they feel about the songs and get back to me – and the results will be published, either anonymously or in person, on this blog.
If you’re reading this and would like to get involved, then Good Morning Britten would very much like to hear from you. All you have to do is register your interest by sending an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, and if possible let me know how much Britten you’ve listened to so far, if any.
I will then select a song / songs for you to listen to and return it with text and instructions. The whole project will take you a few days, but won’t require a great deal of time or effort. It’s all designed for your enjoyment, ideally!
So what are you waiting for? Send me, Ben Hogwood, a mail to get involved…
