Three Shakespeare Songs

SATBarB; Unaccompanied

The shades of Finzi and Vaughan Williams are strongly present in these three delightful madrigals for unaccompanied choir, and yet the style and execution are wholly Rutter’s own. O mistress mine is a jaunty jazz waltz, playing 5/8 bars off against 3/8, 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.
