Marking the birthday of national bard Robert Burns the programme features, in his centenary year, Benjamin Britten's song cycle 'A Birthday Hansel' written as a commission for the Queen Mother's 75th birthday in 1975.  The cycle includes Burns favourites 'A Rosebud by my early walk', 'Flow gently sweet Afton', and 'The winter it is past' - with Britten's altogether different and refreshing settings!  In collaboration with the University's Centre for Robert Burns Studies. 

We hope to see you there!  Please click Music in the University to download the programme for more information.
