benjamin britten: quatre chansons françaises (full score). tenor sheet music
Britten began composing his Quatre chansons francaises in June 1928 and had finished the full score by August of that year, before his 15th birthday. The songs reflect the impact of his lessons with Frank Bridge, which had begun in the autumn of 1927, and he dedicated the work, which was among the most ambitious of his compositions at this time, to his parents, on the occasion of their 27th wedding anniversary. There was no performance of the songs until 1980.
