An Anglo-French programme of lyrical songs by Poulenc, Walton, Chaminade and Finzi, culminating in Vaughan Williams’ evocative song cycle, presented with Jeremy Hamway-Bidgood’s award-winning shadow-play animation.

On Wenlock Edge has been officially selected for six film festivals and this is a rare chance to see it screened as originally conceived, with a live performance as soundtrack, and the film edited live as the music is played. The film creates a story connecting the six songs, and drawing on the life of the poet A E Housman, whose poems are the texts for the cycle.

Poulenc: Les Chemins de l’amour

Poulenc: Deux poèmes de Louis Aragon
