The programme features works by leading West Country composers. It include songs by  Jolyon Lacock, David Bednall , Raymond Warren and  the American composer James D’Angelo, now living in Gloucestershire. It is Warren’s song cycle based on poems by Christina Rosetti that gives the concert its title “Another Spring”. David Bednall’s cycle “The Frost is Here” sets poems by Oscar Wilde, Thomas Hardy and Alfred Lord Tennyson.  Edna St. Vincent Millay ‘s sonnets are the basis of Jolyon Lacock’s songs and James D’Angelo has chosen two mystical poems by Walt Whitman.
