Let Us Garlands Bring

 

Monday 24 June, 6.45pm (no interval)

St Lawrence Jewry

Tickets £15

In the magnificent setting of Wren’s most lavish restoration - the church of St Lawrence Jewry - husband and wife musicians Thomas Humphreys (baritone) and Raya Kostova (piano) perform an evocative and romantic programme in this early evening concert.  The five English composers were direct contemporaries (1870s-1960s) and in this recital we hear their magically lyrical settings of Shakespeare songs along with poems by some of our favourite poets, including John Masefield and Rupert Brooke.

Includes:

Vaughan Williams Silent Noon (Dante Gabriel Rossetti)

Vaughan Williams Songs of Travel (Robert Louis Stevenson)

Finzi Let us garlands bring: Five Shakespeare Songs

Quilter​ Blow, blow, thou winter wind (Shakespeare)

John Ireland The Soldier (Rupert Brooke)

John Ireland Sea Fever (John Masefield)

Thomas Humphreys, baritone

Raya Kostova, piano
