    Description: St Andrew's Cathedral Music at Noon

    An exhilarating short programme featuring folk song settings by Schönberg, Hahn and Holst to celebrate their 150th Birthdays.
    The programme features:

    Schönberg, Arnold (1874 – 1951)
                ‘Drei Volksliedsätze’ Op. 49 (1948)

    1. Es gingen zwei Gespielen gut
    2. Der Mai tritt ein mit Freuden
    3. Mein Herz in steten Treuen
    These pieces are from the lighter side of his repertoire and have proved a revelation :-)

    Hahn, Reynaldo (1874 – 1947)
    ‘Chansons et Madrigaux’ (1907)
    1. Vivons, Miguarde!
    2. Pleurez avec moi!
    3. En vous disant adieu

    Holst, Gustav (1874 – 1934)
               from ‘Six choral folksongs’ Op. 36 (1916)

    2. There was a tree
