About us

In the final concert of the English Song Day, tenor Matthew Long focusses on the English folk song. George Butterworth was instrumental in the English folk song revival, a thread that continued to Benjamin Britten and beyond. His settings from 'A Shropshire Lad' are a very significant part of a small surviving output; he destroyed many manuscripts before leaving for the Western Front, a trip from which he would not return. The final song in Finzi's 'Oh Fair to See' was his last completed music; it has been described as 'a beautiful and perfect final love letter to [his wife] Joy, to his art, and to life itself'.
