Shakespeare in Song covers music from Shakespeare's time to our time, and features dramatic readings of poetry by Shakespeare and from his time. In Part 1 of the concert, we present music from Shakespeare's time, music he may have heard his contemporaries play. We chose music from France, Italy, and England, including composers such as Sandrin, Le Jeune, Marenzio, Monteverdi, Weelkes, Morley, and Dowland. The second half of the concert, Music on Shakespeare's Texts, will present music set to Shakespeare's words, ranging from the familiar to the new. This section includes Vaughan Williams, Pointer, Zamont, Freedman, and Mathias.
