Passiontide at Merton review

Lovely extensive article by Roderic Dunnett in this week's Church Times about last month's Passiontide at Merton festival, including glowing coverage of the recital with Jeremy Kenyon and Thomas Elwin.  Dunnett praises the "four exquisitely accompanied Britten folksongs" and continues "The plum was Kenyon's singing, with his (here) light-touch accompanist Libby Burgess, of Tippett's three Songs for Ariel… Dark, delicate, impish, buoyant, trumpetingly triumphant, these songs typify the best of Tippett, and capture to perfection the best of Shakespeare." The full article is available here.
