Programme Note

An evening inspired by English and Welsh poets, with Robert Hugill’s settings of Rowan Williams, and Christina Rosetti (both of which featured on ‘Quickening’, the recent disc of Robert Hugill’s music), George Butterworth’s iconic A.E. Housman cycle and Frank Bridge’s settings of Matthew Arnold and Shelley. Both Hugill’s song cycle ‘Quickening’ and Bridge’s ‘Three Songs’, combine voice, viola and piano, and complementary instrumental music is provided by York Bowen’s lyrical ‘Fantasy’ for viola & piano, and a work by Hugill which was premiered by Rosalind Ventris earlier this year.
