Britten Canticles

As part of the worldwide celebrations of the centenary of Benjamin Britten’s birth and as part of the 650th anniversary of the completion of Vicars Close, this intimate performance of four of Britten’s Canticles was given in Wells Cathedral by members of the Vicars Choral, Jonathan Vaughn, Jonathan Quaintrell-Evans, Finn Lacey and Owain Park.
The works were performed interspersed with Britten’s own realizations of the songs of Henry Purcell, by whom Britten was greatly inspired in his own song settings.
