Cantate Chamber Singers are devoting their entire season to Benjamin Britten, whose 100th birth anniversary was this past November. For their March 23, 2014 concert, Cantate performs the first of Britten's Church Parables, Curlew River. Classical WETA's morning host David Ginder chats with Cantate Music Director Gisèle Becker about the inspiration for the work, the emotional power of the drama, and about a new piece written for the concert by Gary Davison.
