Epithalamium, by Andrew Ford

Source: Recorded live at Halcyon concert 'Lily on a Black Wave: Modern composers interpret Shakespeare' at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music on 6 October 2007

An epithalamium (or epithalamion) is a song after a wedding. This one sets words from the wedding scene of Ferdinand and Miranda in Act IV of Shakespeare's The Tempest. The words themselves may or may not be by Shakespeare – a number of Shakespeare scholars have their doubts that he wrote this part of the play – but the blessing delivered by the three spirits, in the forms of the goddesses Juno, Ceres and Iris, contains some delightful imagery.
