A recital of two halves, exploring the responses to Shakespeare of composers from Haydn to Finzi, including the premiere of Barry Mills’s Shakespeare Settings, followed by a look at the very different paths taken by Ivor Gurney, Herbert Howells and Ivor Novello, who all grew up together as schoolboys in Gloucester.
