EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The triptych ‘Evening’, ‘Morning’ and ‘Night’ (first published in 1988) originally formed part of the incidental music Britten composed in 1945 for the Masque and Anti-Masque of This Way to the Tomb, a play by Ronald Duncan, who in the following year went on to provide the libretto for Britten’s opera The Rape of Lucretia.
