From Wikipedia. The lengths to which people would go during the World Wars to ensure a semblance of creativity remained are clear in the genesis of this piece. The commission was from Richard Wood, who had organised a male voice choir in the Oflag VIIb camp, and Britten responded with this setting of an old tale of betrayal and adultery.

The Britten Thematic Catalogue entry for the work details how the handling of the piano accompaniment should depend on the size of chorus and soloists available. Despite his obvious fondness of writing for the male voice, this is the first substantial piece of Britten to be scored for a male voice choir.
