Samuel Barber’s Hermit Songs sit at the centre of this programme. Arguably his best-known cycle of songs, they are, in Barber’s own words, ‘settings of anonymous Irish texts of the eighth to thirteenth centuries written by monks and scholars, often on the margins of manuscripts they were copying or illuminating.’ Around that, Theodore Platt – a prize winner at the 2019 Kathleen Ferrier Awards – and Keval Shah weave an array of spiritually-inclined songs by Ives, Dvorák, Price and others.
