childhood I listened to his records saw Pears sing Peter Grimes Let Me Call You Sweetheart and the War Reuiem performed in the new Coventry Cathedral Later I lived in Essexnd Suffolk Seren Wen ar Gefndir Gwyn and I met many people who had had contact with Britten in one way ornother Teeline for Journalists and heard him give song recital with Peter Pears Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba Vol 12 at
