    I’m so sorry to have missed this concert which Andrew Polmear describes so well here; and particularly the Britten canticle. To hear the concert described as worthwhile for “three spoken lines” astonishes me – it’s half a century since my spine was tingled by the sudden, quite unexpected declamation by Peter Pears of these words; the eerie sprechtgesang was certainly not singing, but equally certainly they were not spoken. I so miss hearing what Padmore made of them!
