English Musical Splendor
Saturday, March 14, 2020 | 7:30 pm

In the period between World War I and World War II, England experienced a musical resurgence that not been seen since the time of Henry Purcell 200 years earlier. Tonight’s program, presented by the combined forces of London’s Bach Choir and Yale University’s preeminent choral groups, pays homage to that golden age of English music. Esteemed conductor David Hill highlights composers including Vaughan Williams, Charles Villiers Stanford and Arnold Bax, culminating in William Walton’s masterpiece, “Belshazzar’s Feast.”
