What do England’s greatest composers dream of? Renaissance dances? The futility of war? The allure of nature (perhaps amongst the ruins of conflict)? Suicide? Peace (or sighing for its loss)? Or simply holidaying in Wales? Whatever their reveries or nightmares, the response is always great depth and beauty… – and these musical responses are perhaps the most beautiful of all.
