Do you or your organisation have plans to celebrate the 150th anniversary?
In a long and productive life, music flowed from Vaughan Williams’ creative pen in profusion. Hardly a musical genre was untouched or failed to be enriched by his work, which included nine symphonies, concertos for piano, violin, oboe and tuba, five operas, chamber, ballet and film music, a large body of songs and song cycles, and various important unaccompanied and orchestral choral works.
His orchestral works include such popular favourites as The Lark Ascending, Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus, The Wasps Overture and the English Folk Song Suite. Moreover, his hymn tunes and carol arrangements have been sung by countless people, and his tireless work collecting and preserving English folk music place him at the very heart of the country’s musical fabric.
