A Summer Serenade

A Summer Serenade


The final concert in this 150th anniversary year for Cockermouth Harmonic Society is a programme of British music. Three tuneful collections of songs will enchant and relax on a summer evening.

Songs From The Bavarian Highlands by Edward Elgar are songs based on Bavarian folk tunes arranged by the favourite composer of the early twentieth century. Slightly less well-known are Songs Of the Fleet by Charles Villiers Stanford, accompanied by some dramatically descriptive music.
The third piece for choir and soloist is the world premiere of Philip Wood’s Five Shakespeare Songs. Written specially for Cockermouth Harmonic Society’s 150th anniversary, we are looking forward to surprising and delighting our audience with these contrasting and beautiful settings of words from Shakespeare.

The soloist is bass-baritone Jolyon Dodgson, and Ian Thompson will conduct the choir, accompanied by Nicholas Butters.
