I was, of course, but often wished he was not so famous so that one could see more of this brother who was such a joy to be with.

Janet Baker has written that the air crackled when he walked into the room, and she was right...The younger of Benjamin Brittens two sisters, Elizabeth (Beth) Britten first published this loving and revealing portrait of their shared childhood in 1986.

She evokes the Lowestoft upbringing of the four Britten siblings, their dentist father Robert, and mother Edith, who keenly encouraged the childrens interest in music. She recalls the flat they shared in London while Benjamin studied at the Royal College of Music- and tells of The Old Mill at Snape, Brittens home/studio after its renovation by Beths future father-in-law.

Of special interest are Brittens letters to Beth from America, where he and Peter Pears emigrated in 1939 then became ensconced after war broke out.
