Britten / Gipps / Tippett: Unveiled

Delphian - DCD 34293
Elgan Llyr Thomas, tenor
Iain Burnside, piano
Craig Ogden, guitar
Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo, Op. 22
To Gratiana dancing and singing
Four Songs of Youth
Songs for Achilles
In Jeremy Sams’ new English - language singing version of Britten’s Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo, the passionate sentiments are liberated from the safe historical distance of the Italian Renaissance and unveiled in a way that was not possible in 1940, when Britten wrote t he cycle – his first for his partner Peter Pears. Tenor Elgan Llyr Thomas presents it alongside Michael Tippett’s equally ardent Songs for Achilles and a short item by W. Denis Browne, a close friend of the poet Rupert Brooke, as well as premiere recording s of four Brooke settings by Ruth Gipps and a new song - cycle by Thomas himself, to poems by Andrew McMillan. Tackling themes of love, shame, acceptance, war and death, the programme traverses a history of male homosexuality from necessary discretion to the (relatively) liberated present.
