Three choral works showcase the lighter side of three giants of British music. Ralph Vaughan Williams’s cantata In Windsor Forest, taken from his opera Sir John in Love, uses texts by Shakespeare and his contemporaries to tell a tale of love, fairy trickery, and weddings. Edward Elgar’s high-spirited songs, in From the Bavarian Highlands, pay tribute to the folk tunes and dances of the German countryside. And Benjamin Brittens Rejoice in the Lamb sets the poetry of Christopher Smart to music ranging from praise for “my cat Jeoffrey” to a final, bell-like “Hallelujah.” A string chamber group, led by James Lyon, accompanies the singers. Please join us for a feast of British melody.
