Lecture Recital - in-person and livestream options
Benslow Music, Benslow Lane, Hitchin
In Shakespeare's plays and poems references to songs and singing are abundant (the word music alone occurs well over two hundred times), and these songs vary from the crudest ballads to some of the most subtle and moving art-songs to be found anywhere.
Gerald Place, a former choral exhibitioner at Trinity College, Cambridge, draws together all these references to singing, illustrating the talk with songs accompanied by the viola da gamba.
The lecture recital begins at 2pm following lunch at 1pm (included in the in-person ticket price).
