New,Britten: Spring Symphony, Sinfonia da Requiem, the Young Person's Guide To the Orchestra

Elizabeth Watts (soprano), Alice Coote (mezzo), Allan Clayton (tenor), London Symphony Orchestra, Sir Simon Rattle

It is a fine, taut reading [of the Spring Symphony] with some superb singing by all concerned, swifter than some rivals, in the finale a shade too much so, with some muddy articulation.
