Britten 100 at the British Library

It is now possible to view all of the Benjamin Britten manuscripts held in the British Library online.

To mark Britten’s centenary, the British Library has digitised its Britten manuscripts. They are now available online in a special arrangement with the rights-holders.

An exhibition called Poetry in Sound: The Music of Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) will also take place at the British Library.

Manuscripts of some of Britten’s most celebrated compositions, photographs, concert programmes, and hitherto unpublished recordings of his music are on display.
