A Boy Was Born : Ex Cathedra, The Academy Of Vocal Music

Britten’s choral music has a particular magic: the sweet lyricism of A Hymn to St Cecilia; the special Christmas atmosphere of A Boy Was Born; the Tudor charm and splendour of the choral dances from the opera Gloriana and the youthful genius of A Hymn to the Virgin, written when Britten was just sixteen.

Oliver Condy, Editor of BBC Music Magazine, explains why he has recommended tonight’s concert:

The Britten celebrations get off to a sparkling start with a delightful programme of some of his freshest and most colourful choral music, performed by one of the UK’s foremost choirs.

Britten Jubilate in C
