A Summer Idyll
Sat Jun 29 @ 7.30 pm - 9.30 pm£3 – £12
Join us for a summer evening of wonderful English choral classics. Stanford’s The Bluebird, with a soaring soprano solo, is particularly well-known and evocative of the summer landscape. Tippett’s uplifting Spirituals arrangements are taken from his oratorio A Child of our Time, and Britten’s songs show the composer as an accomplished setter of English pastoral poetry. The Mass in G minor reflects the influence of plainsong and folksong on Vaughan Williams’ melodic writing.
