Britten’s mystical and exciting cantata depicts the miraculous life of St Nicolas in vivid detail, portraying terrifying storms, Nicolas’s marvellous deeds and his pious followers, in the composer’s typically vivid style. Dobrinka Tabakova’s beautiful and reflective Centuries of Meditations, originally commissioned for the Three Choirs Festival Youth Choir, opens the programme, followed by John Rutter’s reverie on heavenly peace, Visions.
