A Liturgical Performance of Benjamin Britten’s ‘My beloved is mine’

Date Time Location
Sunday, 3rd May 2020 6.15pm - 7.00pm The Abbey

A special liturgical performance of Britten’s Canticle I My Beloved is Mine.

Benjamin Britten’s canticle My Beloved is Mine, composed in 1947, uses a text by the Caroline Divine Francis Quarles. Quarles’ imagery, strongly reminiscent of the Song of Songs, speaks of the believer’s joy in encountering the transformative love of Christ.

The canticle will be performed in the context of worship and devotion, alongside a scripture reading, an address and prayers.

It is one of three of Britten’s Canticles which are presented in a devotional context as part of the Abbey’s Theology programme.
