The programme features wonderfully varied arrangements of traditional tunes from around the world, including Canada, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Hungary. The folk songs of Norfolk will naturally also feature in the programme, as arranged by Vaughan-Williams and Moeran.
The programme will also include world premiere arrangements from Josephine Stephenson and Isabella Gellis, written especially for the occasion.
‘…impressive control, an irrepressible sense of drama and extraordinary self-assurance…Betts-Dean manoeuvredunflustered between registers and vocal modes with an unbroken sense of line and an unmissable, urgent musicality…she’s certainly one to watch.’ Flora Willson, The Guardian
