The Waynflete Singers return to the cathedral for their ever-popular Christmas concert.

They are joined by the English Chamber Orchestra, on this occasion with a timely double billing of St Nicholas.

The concert will open with Haydn’s Symphony No 30, nicked-named the ‘Alleluia’ Symphony, a vibrant and lively start to the proceedings . This will be followed by Haydn’s St Nicholas Mass, a work of infectious joy and good cheer. The second half is dedicated Benjamin Britten’s St Nicolas Cantata, a narration of the life of St Nicolas, Bishop of Myrna, and his good works – a lively story complete with sea voyage, storm, saving the daughters of a poor man from a life of prostitution, and the resurrection of three pickled boys! A superb line-up of soloists, with Benjamin Hulett in the role of Saint Nicolas and three boy choristers will bring both works to life.
