Three Shakespeare Songs published

On this day in 2022, Three Shakespeare Songs was published by OUP.

The shades of Finzi and Vaughan Williams are strongly present in these three delightful unaccompanied choral settings, and yet the style and execution are wholly Rutter’s own. O mistress mine is a jaunty jazz waltz, Be not afeard casts a dreamy spell with dusky sonorities and magical harmonies, and Sigh no more, ladies brings the set to a cheerfully melodious and high-spirited conclusion.
