Our summer concert this year is a delightful and varied programme featuring works by three composers from within our own British Isles.

The Sprig of Thyme by John Rutter is a suite of eleven familiar and not so familiar traditional British and Irish folk songs, many covering themes of love lost, found, or betrayal. They include long standing favourites such as the Willow Song and The Miller of Dee and lesser known gems as O Can Ye Sew Cushions and The Sprig of Thyme, a 17th century song from Lincolnshire.

Stanford's Songs of the Fleet is a setting of five nautical poems by Henry Newbolt (1862-1938) who had a particular line in ardently patriotic nautical ballads.

Vaughan Williams' Five Mystical Songs are settings of poems by the 17th century poet and priest George Herbert from his 1663 collection The Temple: Sacred Poems. Though an agnostic, Vaughan Williams' music beautifully complements the religious inspiration behind Herbert's verses.
