David Coram Posted August 19, 2006 Share Posted August 19, 2006 I was fishing out books to take on holiday earlier. Any good summer musical reads anyone would care to share? Mine are/have been/will be: Humphrey Carpenter - biography of BBritten Gerald Moore - Am I Too Loud Stephen Banfield - Finzi biography Slominsky - Lexicon of Musical Invective And, if it ever turns up, the Clucas book full of salacious gossip on Westminster Abbey. Carpenter book on Britten way out in the lead so far - refreshingly thorough after that awful Andrew Marr thing on R4 a few months ago ("Here is an in depth 45 minute documentary about Britten, his life and work. So, was he a pedo?"). Pick up your copy today! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
