Lovely pictures Pliable! I visited the grave site, Snape and the Red House in 1991. It's a very austere place but I can see why Britten loved it: near the sea, quiet, away from civilization a bit. His and Pear's gravestones are beautiful.

What an amazing composer, he's THE British composer as far as I'm concerned. The first opera I went to was A Midsummer Nights Dream and the first I bought on record was his recording of Peter Grimes.
