緊接著劃時代的3000套限量版大全集之後,DECCA再推出四套盒裝之布烈頓作品全集,產品內容分別為「舞台與電影配樂」、「聲樂作品」、「歌劇作品」、「管弦樂與器樂作品」。涵蓋EMI、維京古典(Virgin Classics)、Naxos和華納(Warner)等18 家唱片公司版權所有的錄音,堪稱世紀大作。每一套都附有Andrew Huth詳盡的解說、完整的曲目表及錄音訊息。布烈頓不但親自指揮,更參與錄音工作。
  
布烈頓(Benjamin Britten, 1913-1976)是英國繼巴洛克時期的普賽爾(Henry Purcell, 1658-1695)之後三百年間首位著重創寫歌劇、神劇及相關聲樂曲的重要二十世紀作曲家,他的歌唱類作品不論是歌劇、合唱曲、獨唱曲還是宗教合唱都相當出色。 作品深受工作夥伴男高音皮爾斯(Peter Pears, 1910-1986)的影響,為他寫了許多歌曲,包括了男高音絢爛的《小夜曲》和各種英文的詩歌。
  
《一個男孩誕生》創作於1932年,是布烈頓早期的天才之作,十足的自信的原創,當時他才19歲。然而因內容技巧艱難,限制了作品受歡迎的程度,不過隨著當代合唱技術的精進,此作也快速地獲得應有的指標性地位。由九首歌曲組成的《靈光集》(Les Illuminations,又譯為「幻象」或「彩畫集」)是為男高音與弦樂團而寫,歌詞取自韓波(Artur Rimbaud, 1854-1891)的同名詩集,這是布烈頓最為精巧、最富靈感的作品。由於布烈頓的出生日和相傳掌管音樂的守護聖者聖奇西里亞(Saint Cecilla)的聖日相同,有人認為他擁有過人的音樂才華是上天所賦予的,因此布烈頓也曾創作了一部《聖奇西里亞頌歌》。
1962年完成的《戰爭安魂曲》是布烈頓最重要的代表作。由男高音、女高音、男中音三位獨唱家與合唱團、兩個管弦樂團和管風琴演出,是為了重新興建的柯芬垂教堂(Coventry Cathedral)落成儀式所寫,曲中加入在第一次世界大戰中陣亡的英國反戰詩人歐文(Wilfred Owen)的詩文。本輯中《戰爭安魂曲》的錄音曾獲得各大樂評的一致推崇,包括日本音樂之友社究極100、10R(10 de Repertoire) 法國十大名盤獎、Classic CD 100 英國古典音樂雜誌百大唱片、英國企鵝唱片評鑑(Penguin Guide)三星帶花,絕對值得珍藏。
