    The True Saint Nicolas

    'The True Saint Nicolas' is a 20 minute cantata for mixed voices (SATB) and Children's Choir, commissioned in 2016 by St Nicolas Church Pevensey to mark its 800th anniversary.  The concept is a children's quest to discover the true identity of Santa Claus. The adults lead them through a series of tales about miraculous events attributed to Saint Nicolas – some of which seem less likely to be true than others!  Ultimately, the children recognise a link between the generosity of Santa Claus and the character of the true Saint Nicolas.

    The piece was first performed by Hailsham Choral Society, with children from Pevensey & Westham Primary School.
