CHRISTMAS TO CANDLEMAS
7 DECEMBER 3.00PM: OUR LADY OF VICTORIES, CAMBERWELL
Britten’s A Boy was Born, composed when he was nineteen, rocketed him to national fame when it was first performed on 23 February 1934 as a BBC broadcast. This is our major work for Christmas this year, preceded by five Renaissance motets for Christmas, the Epiphany and Candlemas.
