St. Cecilia 2013.

November 22nd, which means we celebrate St. Cecilia, Patron Saint of musicians.

Today is a special one as, exactly 100 years ago, Benjamin Britten was born in Lowestoft.

The musical coincidence doesn´t end here, as today I´ll be playing Britten´s "War Requiem" with the Asturias Symphony Orchestra, a real reason for celebration.

Nothing better to celebrate our day than "Hymn to St. Cecilia" by Britten himself. 

Enjoy this day, both musicans and music lovers.
