Celebrate Vaughan Williams’ 150th birthday with this final performance in the RVW150 From Pub to Pulpit tour featuring Wassail Song, O how amiable and Valiant for truth. Vaughan Williams was a collector of folk songs, and he borrowed these tunes for some of the best-loved hymns in the 1906 English Hymnal. Join folk groups Broomdasher and Coracle, along with the Three Choirs Festival Chorus, to hear the journey of the music from secular tune to sacred song, with a rousing finale that encourages some audience participation!
