A Celebration of our Glorious English Heritage

A Celebration of our Glorious English Heritage

Wednesday, June 13, 2012 - 19:30

This is the second concert in the 12th Bledington Music Festival. The concert seeks to capture the mood of Her Majesty the Queen's Diamond Jubilee with a celebration of English music.

There is an intriguing mixture of established composers with the less well-known. The concert also includes the rarely performed song cycle by John Ireland - 'Mother and Child'

There are piano solos played by Jennie-Helen Moston of works by Gustav Holst which cleverly continue the theme.
