    Boston soprano Rebekah Alexander and Sudbury guitarist Dave McLellan present a concert of song cycles by Bejanmin Britten, Lennox Berkeley, Stephen Dodgson, and David Leisner. Poetry by Emily Dickinson, Emily Bronte, Walter de la Mare, John Clare, and philosophy of the ancient Chinese.

    Rebekah Alexander on the program: “We want to express the drama and intensity of the poetry, without forgetting the light-heartedness of some texts, and the sheer humor and satire of others. The range of emotional expression is vast – from Britten’s crafting of the noble reflections of the ancient Chinese, through the brooding of Berkeley’s setting of de la Mare’s dreamily imaginative poems; from the naturist quality, but politically satirical insanity of John Clare (set by Dodgson), to the intense introspection of Dickinson Bronte, and others, so beautifully cast by the young American guitarist/composer David Leisner”.
