Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 22 December, 1933

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 158:

Listen to 'Cris du Monde' of Honegger after dinner.* Difficult to judge, as it came over badly; some of it was very impressive (esp. the end) & extraordinarily beautiful.
