Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?

This secular work by John Rutter sets the text of Shakespeare’s Sonnet No. 18. Rutter skilfully weaves the figurative language of the sonnet within the melodic lines of the music. Shakespeare’s text is passed between the voices, with the warm harmonies enveloping the sonnet’s use of imagery.
