Repertoire Note

Composed as a companion piece to the earlier Serenade, the Nocturne revisits the nocturnal world of that work, though here the tenor solo is joined by seven solo instruments, each imparting a different tone colour to each setting. The full forces combine only in the final song, a lyrical setting of Shakespeare’s Sonnet 43, ‘When most I wink’.
