This program of 19th and 20th century songs shows how the influence of great literature has proven irresistable to composers. Alongside the more well-known works the program includes two lesser known settings of Sonnet 43 - one by French composer Henri Sauguet and the second by English composer David Bowerman. Ben Johnson represented England in BC Cardiff Singer of the World 2013 and won the Audience Prize. Fraham Johnson is recognized as one of the world's leading vocal accompanists.
