  • Carpenter, Humphrey (1993-01-04). Benjamin Britten. Faber And Faber Ltd.. ISBN 0571143245. 

"A first-rate, if somewhat less than magisterial, treatment by Carpenter (The Brideshead Generation, 1990, etc.) of the life and works of one of the 20th century's towering musical figures--the man who put English music firmly on the larger European map. This is like a run-through of a great symphony by a major orchestra under a more-than-adequate international conductor. All the notes--Carpenter's prodigious research--are firmly in place." - Kirkus Reviews
