Irish operatic soprano Ailish Tynan and her regular pianist partner Iain Burnside present a characteristically wide-ranging programme, including Herbert Hughes arrangements of Irish songs and Grieg’s stormy Six Songs. Their finale is a song that has recently become popular as an anthem to staff of the NHS working on the front line against the Coronavirus pandemic.
