Live from Dorchester Abbey, Oxfordshire
Presented by Catherine Bott

The closing concert of this year's English Music Festival includes an intriguing world premiere - a setting of words by Algernon Swinburne for soprano, chorus and orchestra by Vaughan Williams - 'The Garden of Proserpine'. David Hill conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. They are joined by cello soloist Raphael Wallfisch for a performance of the large-scale Rhapsody by York Bowen and the concert also includes folk-inspired music for strings by Vaughan Williams, a favourite short piece by Delius and a darkly atmospheric Hardy-inspired landscape by Holst.
