My Beloved is Mine showcases the complete Canticles of Benjamin Britten, widely considered to be among the greatest chamber works he ever composed. Written specifically for the voice of his partner and muse Peter Pears, Britten weaves seamlessly between the sacred, profane, dramatic, and divine to create five mini-masterworks. Tenor Ethan DePuy stars in this deeply personal program, which presents an impassioned celebration of the composer's unique musical language.
