Abstract:
Benjamin Britten was commissioned by the BBC to write music for a radio broadcast on Michaelmas (September 29) in 1937. This was to be Britten's second work in the field of radio incidental music and in contrast to many earlier BBC radio programs he was the only composer for the Michaelmas broadcast. The document concentrates on the musical content of the eleven movements of The Company of Heaven, the source of the spoken and sung texts assembled by Richard Ellis Roberts, the compositional techniques found in select works written by Britten from 1930-1937 that influenced the content of The Company of Heaven, and the influence that The Company of Heaven had on subsequent select composition during the next ten years.
