Burning Bright: William Blake Anniversary Concert

£10.00 (advance sales)

On the anniversary of William Blake’s baptism at St James’s Church Piccadilly a new choir, The Blake Singers, will perform choral settings of Blake poems and other literary works. Formed of scholars and graduates from some of the country’s top music colleges, singers will perform arrangements by the likes of Tavener and Elgar as well as by contemporary composers such as Gabriel Jackson.

The short concert will also include other choral settings inspired by literature, such as Three Shakespeare Songs by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Solo/duet extracts from Ten Blake Songs by Ralph Vaughan Williams for tenor/soprano and oboe, and extracts from Britten’s Songs and Proverbs of William Blake for baritone and piano will complete the programme.
