The essential recording . . . a classic Decca set that concentrates her vocal and dramatic strengths into a truly thrilling, no-holds-barred, all-round performance . . . [It] is among examples of the greatest British singing of its time.

Britten's devastating master-opera is graced with a performance to match, with stellar playing and a mesmerising tour de force each from Robert Tear's Quint and Helen Donath's Governess.
