We're delighted to bring you a second chance to hear the music from our Deddington Festival concert, Sounds Sublime, along with some additional pieces.

From the beautiful four-part harmonies of pieces such as Gibbons The Silver Swan, Byrd’s The Nightingale and local composer Paul Burke’s Lumen through solo pieces including Elgar’s Sea Pictures and Butterworth’s Is My Team Ploughing, to Debussy’s stunning piano work Cathedrale Engloutie.  All this interspersed with the moving and thought provoking poetry of  AE Housman’s    A Shropshire Lad which so many English composers have set to music.
A truly sublime afternoons music; the perfect antidote to the close of summer and the onset of autumn

Tickets:  £12
Concert running time: approx 75 minutes, no interval.
