'Muse Of Fire'
A Shakespeare Anthology


Derby Cathedral


8th November 1984



Pat Laurie

This collaboration with the Lonsdale Early Music Consort featured scenes from Shakespeare alongside songs and sonnets and was performed at the invitation of the Provost of Derby Cathedral.

The performance was conceived and directed by our stalwart member Pat Laurie and included material from 'Henry V', 'Henry IV', 'Hamlet', 'Julius Caesar', 'Richard II', 'As You Like It', 'Cymbeline', various of Shakespeare's sonnets and his poem 'The Passionate Pilgrim'. It also featured an imagined meeting between Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V.

We hope to be able to add more information and photographs from this production soon.
