Programme Note

Our regular visit to Southwell Minster brings romantic music of delicacy, richness and power. Mahler's Ruckert Lieder sets five poems by German romantic poet Friedrich Ruckert: they are the most gentle and beautiful of all Mahler's many song cycles. Bruckner's adagio by contrast is warm and rich, an arrangement of the adagio from his string quintet. Elgar's first symphony reflects the composer's times in its bold confidence, but also the composer's doubt and search for faith in its profound and searching slow movement.

Wonderful music, deeply moving!
