Recorder player Jane Shuttleworth and soprano Elizabeth Roberts, accompanied on piano by Janet Evans present a light hearted programme introducing some of the core works of the recorder repertoire, paired with matching songs. The selection of music mixes playful fantasies and dreams with more serious, heartfelt desires.

Aria: Lascia ch’io pianga, from Rinaldo
Sonata no 2 for treble recorder in A minor, HWV362
Cantata for soprano and recorder HWV134: Nel dolce dell’oblio (Pensieri Notturni Di Filli)

Roger Quilter: Love’s Philosophy

Edmund Rubbra: Sonatina for treble recorder

Benjamin Britten: Johnny

Lennox Berkeley: Sonatina for treble recorder

Benjamin Britten: Tell me the truth about love

Admission free. The Senior Common Room at St Chad’s is easy to find – go through the main college entrance on North Bailey, and it’s the door immediately across the lobby.
