Discover the music of Madeleine Dring! During her short lifetime Dring wrote a number of works in a range of genres, including many small-scale miniatures. A celebratory programme of pieces by London-born Madeleine Dring (1923-1977), together with music by her contemporaries and inspirations, including Gurney, Sullivan, Britten and Gershwin.
