GLOW: A Ploughman’s Tale

October 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

As part of GLOW, the Gloucester Music Festival, Robert-John Edwards (bass-baritone) performs A Ploughman’s Tale, accompanied by Sara Wilander (piano).

“A Ploughman’s Tale” is a concept-recital which tells the story of an everyman who fought in the trenches, told through songs by composers or with words by poets who lived through the time of The Great War.

It includes songs composed by Butterworth, Farrar, Elgar, Gurney, Britten, Peel, Vaughan Williams and Ireland as well as contemporary popular songs and an original setting of John McCrae’s poem “In Flanders’ Fields” by Robert-John Edwards. It was first performed on the centenary of the beginning of The Great War in August 2014 and then again on Armistice Day in 2015. In 2018, the CD was released. 

Following over a decade of professional operatic experience, Robert-John now focuses on his main passions of performing Lieder repertoire by Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Richard Strauss, Mahler and Schoeberg, and English song.

GLOW is grateful to Ecclesiastical Insurance, Cityfibre, and The Ivor Gurney Society for their generous support as well as their individual sponsors. IQVE.
