British Riches

In a fusion of music and poetry, George Butterworth, Benjamin Britten, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Malcolm Arnold all plumbed the works of great English poets: Shelley, Tennyson, Coleridge, Middleton, Wordsworth, Keats, Shakespeare, Burns and A.E. Houseman. Tenor Zachary Wilder leads an exploration of love and death, life and loss, dreaming and the poignancy of the English countryside. The program also includes Elegy for String Orchestra by Grace Williams, generally regarded as Wales’s most notable female composer. Sponsored by McGuireWoods
