On Wenlock Edge
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.
