‘SPIRITED’

Spirited is the Gazette of The English Music Festival and this immaculately presented, clearly set and cleanly designed publication brings to a global audience insightful, thought-provoking and stimulating articles on all subjects pertaining to English music and works by British composers. Further essays on British art, landscape, literature and culture serve to place the composers in their cultural context and provide a deeper level of interest and enlightenment. Each issue also features CD and book reviews, interviews with artists appearing at the Festival, and news of the Festival’s burgeoning UK and European Concerts Series, as well as a wealth of information from the large number of societies, organisations and museums which are a part of the EMF’s ground-breaking British Composer Organisations Scheme. No aficionado of English music can afford to be without this cornucopia of riches.
