Visiting York Minster.Visit
Join York Early Music Festival in celebrating the very best of Medieval York through a programme of historically informed music performed to the highest international standard.
Hubert Parry’s six Songs of Farewell must surely rank among the finest choral works ever written. Deeply affected by the First World War, Parry sought out poetry that would reflect not only peace, unity and the search for a better world, but also an escape from the horrors of war. The poems he chose to set are sublime, be they metaphysical poetry by Donne and Vaughan or the beauty of Thomas Campion. Three works by the poet and lutenist Campion, coupled with medieval carols exploring patriotic ceremony, provide a variety of sound-worlds to complement the rich sonority of Parry’s songs.
