Benjamin Britten
Saint Nicolas

Join Emmanuel Music, along with Cambridge Common Voices, Andrew Clark, conductor, and Boston Children’s Chorus, Krystal Morin, conductor, for an opulent celebration of the holiday season, centered around Benjamin Britten’s dramatic cantata Saint Nicolas, inspired by Saint Nicholas’ legendary care for the poor and oppressed. Set against the lush horns and arias of Bach’s Epiphanytide cantata, Sie werden aus Saba alle kommen, BWV 65, we link holiday traditions old and new with a newly commissioned motet by Jonathan Woody, inspired by its accompanying program.
