Britten – Saint Nicolas

18 January 2020 at 7:30 pm

A concert of contrasting works from the 18th & 20th centuries

Two tuneful Haydn choral works (the ‘Little Organ” Mass) and (Insanae et Vanae Curae) are complemented by a delightful chamber orchestral piece – Mozart’s Divertimento in D, K136 which demonstrates why the young Mozart’s works were so admired, even in his own lifetime.

The second half of the concert will feature the dramatic Cantata of Saint Nicolas by Britten. Written in 1948 it tells the story of the legendary Saint Nicolas, (the 4th century Bishop of Myra, Lycia) who became the Patron Saint of children and the inspiration for Santa Claus. An appropriate link to the proximity of this concert with the festive season.
