Ye Olde England

Royal College of Music (London) graduate, Christian Lillicrap teams up again with Violinist, Dan Russell for a recital from Ye Olde England.

Calm, restful works evoking scenes of lush green pastures and mother England. Violin and piano sonatas by Delius and Elgar pave the way for one of the most exquisite works in the violin repertoire, The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan Williams. A work based on English poet, George Meredith’s poem:

...For singing till his heaven fills,

'Tis love of earth that he instils,

And ever winging up and up,

Our valley is his golden cup

And he the wine which overflows

to lift us with him as he goes…
