What to expect Experience William Blake as both poet and artist. Composers including Vaughan Williams, Quilter, Parry, Walton, Clarke and others set Blake’s poetry. Today, a rich selection of these fantastic songs are made even more vivid by projected images of Blake’s striking artworks, in a special project curated by tenor Robin Tritschler.

The Artists Tenor Robin Tritschler has been hailed as ‘radiantly lyrical’. He was a BBC New Generation Artist, and has subsequently enjoyed a career of opera, oratorio and – especially – song. Pianist Christopher Glynn combines a busy life playing song and chamber music around the world with his role as artistic director of the acclaimed Ryedale Festival.
