The second half begins with a second Festival commission by Susannah Self, ‘All Shall be Well’, a setting of the words of Julian of Norwich for mezzo-soprano and string quartet. Susannah will be the singer in this work and also in Chanson Perpétuelle – a moving work by Chausson for mezzo, piano and string quartet.
