Benjamin Britten in Lowestoft - 19 January, 1935

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 244:

Have one of my periodical Liver attacks in aft - so don't go to tea with Fernade & Laurence Sewell as Mum & Beth do. Am much rewarded as I hear some v. int. Gram. records on wireless and also a v. fine show of Berlioz L'Enfance du Christ from Paris. There is some marvellous music in this.
