My Performance with Shannon Mercer on Classical 96.3FM

It was a huge pleasure performing with Shannon Mercer a few days ago for Classical 96.3FM, and below is the video of the program. Here are the songs we performed:

1) Villanelle - H .Berlioz (from the song cycle Les Nuits D'Etes)
2) Bugeilio'r Gwenyth Gwen (Watching the Golden Wheat)- trad Welsh Folk song arr. Alun Hoddinot
3) Lascia ch'io pianga (Let me Weep) - Almirena's aria from Handel's opera Rinaldo
4) She loves and she confesses too - Henry Purcel

The lovely Hoddinot folk song arrangement can also be found on Shannon's Wales: The Land of Song, which she recorded with the Skye Consort. A huge thanks goes out to the many people who have sent in congrats over the last few days. I would also like to thank Alexa Petrenko for the awesome mention of the blog around the 11:50 mark.
