VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Flos Campi 

* Text by Stephanie Fleischmann 

From Renaissance passion to modern mysticism, discover the richness of some lesser-known British music in this wide-ranging concert conducted by eminent English music expert Andrew Manze. 

The visionary sensuousness of Vaughan Williams’ Flos Campi brings together the SCO and SCO Chorus, alongside remarkable young viola player Timothy Ridout - currently a BBC New Generation Artist – who’s also the soloist in the flickering emotions of Britten’s Lachrymae, a heartfelt fantasy on music by John Dowland. 

Welsh composer Grace Williams offers a British answer to Debussy’s La mer in her vivacious, colourful Sea Sketches, and SCO Associate Composer Anna Clyne unveils her brand-new choral piece with its specially-written text by Stephanie Fleischmann.
