Poets Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett were clandestinely married in St Marylebone in 1846. Join us for a day of events that celebrates their connection with the Parish. Soprano Amanda Pitt is joined by St Marylebone Director of Music Gavin Roberts, for a delightful chocolate-box of musical settings of the poetry of both Browning and Barrett, including songs by well-known composers Edward Elgar and Michael Head alongside lesser known gems by Arthur Somervell, Amy Beach, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, and Maude Valeri White.
