Dreaming Spires

An excellent, challenging programme of English music from Ralph Vaughan Willams and Gerald Finzi. We were honoured to have accomplished actor <a href=”https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0854347/”>John Telfer</a> as our narrator. But that doesn’t do John justice he is also a musician, writer and director.

Baritone: Sean Webster

Lo, the Full, Final Sacrifice – Finzi
Five Mystical Songs – Vaughan Williams
