Notes on Benjamin Britten

Scope and Content

Autograph manuscript 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'.

Some annotations were made before it was photocopied (see ECR/2/2/3) and others after, but before the typescript version (ECR/2/2/2).
