Rural Seclusion: Songs and Readings from the Poetry of William Barnes (1801-1886) William Barnes’s Dorset poems are justly celebrated for the power of their lyricism. Many have been set to music, most famously ‘Linden Lea’ in its setting by Vaughan Williams.
This concert of songs and readings from Barnes’s poetry embraces a wide range of subjects and emotional states—love and loss; joy and grief; peace and turmoil; autumn and spring—with a matching range of musical styles from different composers.
With Alex Roose (baritone), Gillian Dooley (soprano), Stephen van der Hoek (piano), and readings and narration by Professor Tom Burton.
Presented by the JM Coetzee Centre for Creative Practice, Adelaide University.
