Canticle Two “Abraham and Isaac”  (Dellal, Seminatore)

This program presented concert arrangements of songs by Henry Purcell, magical spells, and musical setttings of poems by Thomas Hardy. The spectacular, quasi-operatic Canticle “Abraham and Isaac” is Britten’s musical setting of a Chester Mystery Play from the 14th century.

(We are pleased to say that Pickman Hall was nearly full, the applause was enthusiastic, and the Britten Canticle was successfully performed from memory!)
