14. A remarkable legacy
Together with Peter Pears, Britten created a remarkable legacy: extraordinary vocal music, a revival of English opera, the Aldeburgh Festival and a unique and extensive archive. "I hope when you next go to a Benjamin Britten concert or seek out his music," said Joan Bakewell, "you’ll not only think of the lives touched by his genius, but of the people who were there to offer support and comfort."
