  4. On Wenlock Edge - Ralph Vaughan Williams

In celebration of Ensemble 360’s new CD featuring works by Howard Skempton, this concert includes two pieces revised in 2018 especially for chamber ensemble. These are presented together with Beethoven’s To the distant beloved, often regarded as the first ever song-cycle, and Vaughan Williams’s beautifully elegiac On Wenlock Edge. The composer’s settings of AE Houseman’s Shropshire Lad poems are sung by James Gilchrist, praised by The Times as an interpreter of English song who is “in a class by himself”.

“[Skempton’s music is] austerely beautiful, sparse, decidedly enigmatic.” The Guardian
