The Holy Sonnets of John Donne, Op 35

composer
2-19 August 1945
arranger

 
Since she whom I loved is from The Holy Sonnets of John Donne by Britten. It’s one of the most touching songs I know—it can bring tears to my eyes just to imagine it, and took many, many hours to record, painstakingly recording each line of the piano part one at a time—nine cello parts in all. The song is sung by a man whose lover has died young, so his thoughts turn, jealously, to heaven and God.
