Classical music inspired by Shakespeare
As a lover of English music and poetry, it's not a wonder Finzi composed songs to the text of the Bard. His 1942 set of five songs for baritone, 'Let Us Garlands Bring' are among his best-known works, but he also composed incidental music to Shakespeare's 'Love's Labour's Lost' in 1946.
