In partnership with Oxford Lieder, Emma Doherty will direct two newly-staged performances of Clairières dans le ciel composed by Lili Boulanger, performed in the original French text by Francis Jammes, and On Wenlock Edge composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams, words by A. E. Housman, in the woodland at Waterperry. Audiences can enjoy these events as stand-alone performances or as part of their wider festival experience. The singers joining us for these projects are Siân Dicker (Clairières dans le ciel) and Ted Black (On Wenlock Edge).
