  • Edgar, Hannah. 15 queer composers you should know, via WFMT website, posted June 25, 2015, viewed on May 28, 2020 (Benjamin Britten (November 22, 1913 - December 4, 1976). Britten was introduced to tenor Peter Pears through a mutual friend. When that friend died in a plane crash in 1937, both men volunteered to help move his possessions. That project would be the first of many between the two, marking the beginning of a professional and personal relationship that would last more than 40 years. Britten would compose several opera roles and song cycles for Pears, who in turn became the foremost interpreter and champion of Britten's vocal music. Of their relationship, Pears' niece, Sue Phipps, said: "They made a conscious decision to neither flout it nor ignore it.")
  • Paget, Clive. The 10 greatest gay composers, via Limelight website, posted February 28, 2016, viewed on May 28, 2020 (Benjamin Britten; composer, conductor and pianist; lived with another man for most of his adult life; the composer never spoke openly about his lifelong relationship with the tenor Peter Pears but their marital arrangements were never in doubt. As Pears himself succinctly put it, "we are after all queer and left and 'conshies', which is enough to put us, or make us put ourselves, outside the pale, apart from being artists as well". Their love letters, many of which have been published, make for a touching read)
