Notes and Editorial Reviews:

For this disc of the "Britten the Performer" series, BBC Legends brings together two recordings which relate both to Queen Elizabeth II and to concert-hall openings. The first half of 1964 brought England two new concert halls: Queen Elizabeth Hall in London and the Snape Maltings in Suffolk. The Queen attended the opening performances in both halls, and Benjamin Britten performed on both programs.
The recordings of Britten's own works included on this disc are from the Queen Elizabeth Hall opening. "Hankin Booby" was composed for the occasion, and Britten made a special version of the Choral Dances from his opera 'Gloriana,' originally written for Elizabeth's coronation, with brief links added between the dances for tenor Peter Pears with harp accompaniment.
For the opening of the Snape Maltings, Britten performed excerpts from Handel's 'Ode for St. Cecilia's Day,' fittingly acknowledging the patron saint of music in what has become known as one of Britain's finest concert venues. The present recording is drawn not from the hall's opening but from a complete performance of the work two days later. Although perhaps not as fleet as more recent "historically informed" Handel recordings, this is an admirably executed reading with stellar performances all round.

Reviews:
Fanfare (1-2/00, pp.259-260) - "...[Britten's] approach to [the 'Ode for St. Cecilia's Day] seems refreshingly and aptly exuberant, and is backed up by excellent choral and orchestral execution....the chorus...sings with stunningly beautiful intonation [in the Choral Dances from 'Gloriana']..."
