Next to the Bible, the words of Shakespeare have probably provided more inspiration to composers than any other text. We mark the 400th anniversary of his death with a celebration in music, including choral settings, songs and instrumental music.

Vaughan Williams Three Shakespeare Songs
Mathias Shakespeare Songs
Murrill O mistress mine
Wood Full fathom five
Jaakko Mäntyjärvi Four Shakespeare Songs
Solo songs by Bridge, Finzi and Quilter
