Description: Jonson’s masque, as adapted for the Shakespeare Birthday Celebration at Stratford-upon-Avon in 1905, with incidental music by Vaughan Williams. At the heart of the music are four great Hymns to Pan for three female soloists, chorus and orchestra. Time was short, so Vaughan Williams delegated some of the dance arrangements to his friend Gustav Holst. The work was performed just once, on Easter Monday 1905 and was reconstructed for this recording. Texts included. Mary Bevan, Sophie Bevan (sopranos), Jess Dandy (contralto), Johnny Herford (baritone), Timothy West, Samuel West (actors), Choir of Clare College, Cambridge, Britten Sinfonia; William Vann.
