One Response to Happy birthday Benjamin Britten!

  1. I found the book “Benjamin Britten – Pictures from a Life 1913-1976” on a used book sale.
    Compiled by Donald Mitchell and John Evans, released in 1978. I find this book very useful.
    Here in New York WKCR Radio will play the music of Benjamin Britten the whole day. Happy Birthday!
