John Hind: Two Shakespearean Songs
We aim to get back to you within the hour, during shop hours (please see store details), to confirm your reservation. If you do not hear from us then please resend the request.
Settings of two Shakespeare texts by John Hind, for the upper voices (SSA) with a full Piano accompaniment. The first, Come Away, Death is a sombre moment from Twelfth Night, with the second, Will You Buy Any Tape? taken from A Winter's Tale.
The simple tonalities of the first song, coupled with the joyful dance-like rhythms of the second, suggest a courtly early-Renaissance sound characteristic of Shakespeare's time.
