Product Notes

This special journey begins in England with the inspiring words of William Shakespeare and traditional English melodies from around that time. There is an amorous encounter in Devon by the poet John Keats, with a well-known tune from 'The Beggar's Opera' by John Gay and a traditional Devonshire tune - then we move to the bleak, beautiful hills of Yorkshire with words by Emily Bronte and music by Maddy Aldis. A visit to Wales takes us to a peaceful location with Thomas Jones and the ascent of Snowdon with George Borrow, alongside traditional Welsh folk melodies. In Ireland, we encounter the mischievous fairies with William Allingham, alongside the traditional tune 'The Fairy Dance', and the evocative 'La Fuite de la Lune' by Oscar Wilde alongside an adaptation of a Nocturne by John Field. Travelling over to Scotland, we make a musical ascent of Stac Pollaidh with composer David Bedford (specially written for this concert programme), plus a visit to Skye and beautiful Loch Coruisk with Alexander Smith alongside the famous 'Skye Boat Song' and the traditional tune 'Loch Coruisk'. Robert Burns reflects on leaving the Scottish highlands, with two melodies closely associated with Burns - 'Ye Banks and Braes' and 'A Highland Lad'. This journey ends in the beautiful English Lake District in the county of Cumbria, where we encounter a phantom army with Harriet Martineau, an energetic ride into battle with an 18th century melody 'The Horseman's Port', a peaceful evening walk with poet William Wordsworth, and a wonderful musical evocation of this magnificent area at dusk - 'Twilight' by Robin Walker, specially written for this concert programme.
