Britten: The Burning Fiery Furnace

Short Reviews:

(Britten, Pears, Shirley-Quirk, English Opera Group; London OSA-1163). The instruments provide a naïve barbaric splendor and the voices a quality of simple fervor that well serve this “parable” of those three imperturbable heroes, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
