“Give me some music; music, moody food Of us that trade in love.” (Antony and Cleopatra, Act II, scene 5)

The works of the “Bard of Avon” have inspired generations of composers to create some of our most charming choral works. In the second concert of our season dedicated to poets, Sacred and Profane explores the verse of the master. We will sing Shakespearean texts set to music by Thomas Morley, Amy Beach, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Jaakko Mäntyjärvi, Frank Martin, and others.
