in Hoylandswaine Church on Sunday 9th September at 4 00 pm
Everyone likes to dream a little and to imagine ‘what if …’. Magnolia, in Showboat, Laurey in Oklahoma and alongside a ‘serious’ piece: Liszt’s setting of Victor Hugo’s poem Oh! Quand je dors. ‘While I sleep you come to me as Petrarch came to Laura’, a reference to the renowned lovers.
Greek legend gives us many stories: Ganymed, the young boy taken to Zeus to be his cup bearer, a song by Verdi about the shepherdess Irene, she of the Bo-Peep hat and crook.
George Gershwin takes an alternative view of two saucy heroines, Delilah and The Lorelei. We round off the programme with the saga of Jenny, the Maid of the Mountains and The Heather on the Hill.
The Church is open from 3 30 pm for refreshments.
Admission free. There will be a retiring collection
