The Festival’s Youth Choir revisit the first work commissioned for them: Dobrinka Tabakova’s beautiful and reflective Centuries of Meditations, while the girl choristers take centre stage for John Rutter’s Visions, a reverie on heavenly peace. Britten’s mystical and exciting cantata depicts the miraculous life of St Nicolas in vivid detail, portraying terrifying storms, Nicolas’ marvellous deeds and his pious followers, in Britten’s typically vivid style.
