Ralph vaughan williams* vaughan williams·- sir john barbirolli and philharmonia orchestra - symphony


Vaughan Williams composed extensively in almost every genre but chamber music. He is one of the great setters of English poetry, and vocal music comprises a large part of his output. Major works include " Five Mystical Songs ," " Merciless Beauty ," " Sancta Civitas ," " Serenade to Music ," " Hodie ," " 10 Blake Songs ," and " Dona nobis pacem ." He wrote several operas, not one of which has kept the stage: "Hugh the Drover," "The Poisoned Kiss," " Riders to the Sea, " " Sir John in Love ," and " Pilgrim's Progress ." The last three contain magnificent music. "Sir John" in particular is one great tune after another. There's no accounting for taste.

At the turn of the century he was among the very first to travel into the countryside to collect folk songs and carols from singers, notating them for future generations to enjoy. As musical editor of The English Hymnal he composed several hymn tunes that remain popular (including Sine Nomine , “For all the Saints” and Down Ampney , “Come down O love Divine”). A long and deep friendship with Gustav Holst was a constructive relationship which was crucial to the development of both composers.
