Voice vocal trio
Matthew Sharp cello (baritone)

This concert takes its title from the autobiography of Ursula Vaughan
Williams, whose life and poetry provides
a programmatic thread. Performed and arranged by female vocal trio Voice and
‘cellist Matthew Sharp, songs of myth and memory celebrate Vaughan Williams’ (and lifelong friend Holst’s) enthusiasm for English folksong. At the heart of this programme
is a new suite of madrigals, Silence and
Music, composed for the quartet by Roderick Williams, setting Ursula Vaughan Williams’ poetry. The composer will give a short introduction to the piece and the ‘subtle, sensuous music’ of the poetry that inspired him.
