Music Talk about RUTLAND BOUGHTON & EDMUND RUBBRA

MUSICAL MILESTONES: The English Revival
A talk illustrated with fine CD recordings by Adrian Boynton
Tonight we consider the remarkable contribution to English music of two 'local boys'. Aylesbury-born Rutland Boughton effectively founded Glastonbury Festival - as a vehicle for Wagnerian-style choral dramas based on Arthurian legend! Alongside major choral and theatre works, he wrote fine symphonies, concertos and chamber music. Northampton-born Edmund Rubbra's prolific output covers all musical forms except opera. His superb handling of modal harmony in a distinctively English tradition makes him a more than worthy successor to his teacher, Holst. His output includes beautiful religious choral works, outstanding chamber works and songs, and no less than eleven symphonies, whose musical substance and spiritual grandeur have still to be fully appreciated.
