The Holy Sonnets of John Donne

Benjamin Britten

Online broadcast

Bernadette Iglich sets Britten’s eloquent, searing response to what he saw at the concentration camp at Belsen at the end of the war in The Holy Sonnets of John Donne. Donne’s sonnets ravish and twist, and call out for love and understanding. They are sung by tenor Richard Dowling and accompanied by Ian Tindale.
