AE Housman and the English Idyll

In the second event of our English Song Day, broadcaster, writer and pianist David Owen Norris compares songs by Arthur Somervell and George Butterworth, Arnold Bax and CW Orr, John Ireland and Graham Peel – and more – to show how Housman’s poetry can act both as a window and a mirror. His typically entertaining lecture-recital includes a detailed comparison of recordings of On Wenlock Edge by Ralph Vaughan Williams
