Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 8 September, 1933

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 148:

Also much playing of records of Mass in D.* I like them better. with a bit of careful toning down, the soloists can be made to sound more normal. But what Music! The end of the Gloria (fugue esp.) drives me potty.
