About the concert

The Czech title of the work, Svatebni kosile [The Wedding Shirts], refers to an old folk custom which is described in the text: before her wedding a girl would give her betrothed a wedding shirt that she had made herself. A different title was chosen for the first performance of the cantata in England, namely “The Spectre’s Bride”, which passed into common usage for performances of the work outside the Czech environment.
