Songs for Midsummer Video Raise the Roof

If Music be the food of love, play on…

The lovely Raise the Roof community choir brought us some songs ancient and modern to celebrate Shakespeare

Ancient: Elizabethan ‘anti-austerity songs’ a medley of songs from Shakespeare’s day about trying to have a good time with an empty purse.

Fairly Modern: Juliet Desailly’s setting of Shakespeare’s Full Fathom Five sung in public for the first time in 40 years, apparently!

Very Modern: Kirsty Martin’s setting of words from A Midsummer Night’s Dream (and Hamlet) We Intend for Your Delight written especially for the occasion.
