Notes on Benjamin Britten

Scope and Content

Photocopy of a memoir and appraisal of Britten by Eric Crozier, written in response to Imogen Holst's publication 'Life of Benjamin Britten' in Faber's Great Composers series, which had omitted him.

He intended his version to 'offer a more reliable record than other published material' made before all of the annotations in the autograph manuscript.

An annotation on p13 of this copy was not reproduced in the autograph manuscript.
