Excellent performance on BBC Radio 3 of Saint Nicolas at Aldeburgh Parish Church (where it premiered in 1948). You can still listen to it on BBC Radio iPlayer: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03j9d8k - only available until Friday this week I think, so don’t put it off. Interestingly this is an amateur performance (Jubilee Opera Chorus, Aldeburgh Voices, The Suffolk Ensemble) as was the premier, and it shows how good amateur singing can be.
(Thanks to Olga Way and Helen Payne for mentioning this)
