The five Canticles span more than a quarter century of Benjamin Britten’s life. These marvellously vivid, intensely dramatic works are based on a wide range of literary sources that held deep spiritual and religious meaning for the composer. An extraordinary ensemble of musicians present all five works, in words and music.

Canticle I: My Beloved Is Mine and I Am His
Canticle II: Abraham and Isaac
Canticle III: Still Falls the Rain
Canticle IV: The Journey of the Magi
Canticle V: The Death of Saint Narcissus
