Scurvy Songs from Shakespeare

Part of 2016 Words and Music Festival: Celebrating Shakespeare

Clive Jenkins is associate composer-arranger with the Chamber Ensemble of London, which has played his music at London’s most prestigious venues including the Purcell Room, Kings Place and St James, Piccadilly.

A Plymouth man, many of his works have West Country themes – like The Mayflower Pilgrims, the cantata he wrote for the University of Plymouth Choral Society and Ten Tors Orchestra.

Clive Jenkins’ Scurvy Songs from Shakespeare was commissioned by Plymouth Shakespeare Society to mark the 400th anniversary of the Bard’s death. In them, Autolycus sees the chance to nick some bed linen; Stephano drinks to his escape from drowning; Caliban seeks freedom from servitude.
