Shakespeare In Song / Phoenix Bach Choir
Shakespeare's works contain some of the most memorable references to music in the English language and have inspired some of the finest music - instrumental, vocal, orchestral and operatic - ever written. On this new Chandos SACD the Phoenix Bach Choir has assembled a deeply satisfying anthology of songs on texts by Shakespeare, set by a variety of composers, to form a richly rewarding programme: a memorable marriage of literature and music.
