St. Martin's Chamber Choir, Grand County Concert Series
THERE IS SWEET MUSIC: SHAKESPEARE AT 400
Ralph Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music and other Shakespeare-inspired music
William Shakespeare inspired some of the most beautiful music ever written, and this concert will present a cross-section of it, from settings that were contemporary to Shakespeare (and may have been used in early stagings of his plays – by Thomas Morley, among others) to very modern settings by living composers and everything in between. Most of the program will be a cappella, but the featured work is Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music, with words from The Merchant of Venice, originally written for 16 separate voices, and performed here by exactly that, with piano accompaniment.
