St Pauls Cathedral

We invite you to an evening of lyrical music by Britten, Finzi, Vaughan Williams and Burchell.

This concert includes Benjamin Britten's cantata, 'Saint Nicolas', which tells of the legendary incidents in the life of Nicolas, patron saint of children, seamen, and travellers. The part of Nicolas is sung by the solo tenor David Hamilton, while the choir relates the adventures and ties the story together with prayers and praise.

The Choir is delighted to welcome back world-renowned tenor David Hamilton for this performance. David will also sing the exquisite 'Dies Natalis' by Gerald Finzi.

Also on the programme is David Burchell's 'Te Deum Laudamus' and 'Valiant-For-Truth' by Vaughan Williams.
