    Sophie Bevan and Allan Clayton open their Shakespeare Songbook to reveal 25 delightful settings of the Bard.

    Their recital includes everything from Morley’s ‘It was a lover and his lass’, written during Shakespeare’s lifetime, and the high Victoriana of Myles Birket Foster to John Dankworth’s hauntingly beautiful ‘Our revels now are ended’.
