In the 400th year since his death, William Shakespeare remains one of the greatest English poets of all time.

His works have inspired centuries of music, from lute songs to musicals such as West Side Story and beyond. This program features music inspired by the Bard during his lifetime, including works by Robert Johnson, William Byrd, Alfonso Ferrabosco, Antony Holborne and John Dowland.
