Musical sonnets

A group of musicians have set some of Shakespeare's famous sonnets to music.

The musical director of the project, the early music specialist Robert Hollingworth, told Andrew Marr that the album brings together contemporary melodies, and musical instruments which would have been familiar to Shakespeare, four hundred years ago.

The band have no official name and their album is simply entitled Shakespeare: The Sonnets.
