Product Description


technical comment

  • Back in 1976 Benoît Jacquot – then a very young director – met up with Alfred Deller to make this documentary-interview, which is unique of its kind in that it offers one of the very few filmed documents of the most famous countertenor of the modern era. Several excerpts from concert performances (notably with his son) enable this deeply moving portrait to reproduce the same feeling the composer Michael Tippett experienced when he heard Alfred Deller's voice in Canterbury Cathedral Choir: the sensation that ‘the centuries rolled back'.
