FIVE SHAKESPEARE SONGS
Arranged by David Willcocks
for upper voices, optional narrator, and piano or strings and piano
Five Shakespeare Songs brings together the work of the late Sir David Willcocks ('England's choir master') and the Bard, in a suite of well-loved upper-voice pieces with favourite texts, optional readings, and music of unsurpassed charm. With accompaniments for piano or for strings and piano, the songs can be performed with a newly discovered accompaniment for piano quintet. The effect is a concert piece worthy of the world's stage.
Who is Silvia?
Under the Greenwood tree
Full fathom five
Fear no more the heat o' the sun
It was a lover and his lass
