The Music The songs in this concert reflect the topics that also fixated the artists of the Pre Raphaelite Brotherhood – the recreation of an idealized Middle Ages, the celebration of Nature and of manual labour, the necessity of salvation, and above all, the telling of a story in a single image. Music by Parry and Elgar, amongst others, brings to life the words of the Pre-Raphaelite poets.

The Artists Soprano Anna Dennis won the Royal Philharmonic Society Singer Award 2023, where she was cited as having brought ‘extraordinary technique, musicianship and versatility to the widest array of achievements’. Ashley Riches is a former BBC New Generation Artist and has given several memorable recitals at past Festivals. David Owen Norris is well known as a pianist and broadcaster, with an exceptionally wide range of interests and infectious enthusiasm.
