We cover six centuries of composers in this year's Festival - from Dowland and Campion to world premieres by some of this year's performers. This list, however, is undoubtedly incomplete, so please feel free to get in touch if you know of any omissions. I will update as necessary.

 

If your favourite composer is not represented, please send a tweet to @SwaleFest and I'll try to include him or her in a future Festival.
