Primarily a renowned music critic and conductor and composer of ballets, Constant Lambert wrote very few choral works. Summer’s Last Will and Testament is an extensive cantata of stylistic diversity and emotional power. Completed in 1935, this setting of writings by the poet Thomas Nashe has strong claims to being one of its composer’s finest works. Despite attracting little attention at its premiere, Malcolm Arnold called it “one of the undiscovered treasures of the English choral repertoire”.
'Will and Testament' is a 90mins feature doc. Shot over two years, across the United Kingdom, it has been an adventure following the political icon that was Tony Benn, as he criss crossed the country continuing a long tradition of radical socialism. For the first time his personal and political archive is combined with the most frank and candid interviews he ever gave set against a surrealist backdrop of his life created at Ealing Studios. 'Will and Testament' is a unique portrait a man some hated, many loved but who all of us respected.
