Ralph Vaughan Williams is one of Britain’s most illustrious composers, and this specially curated selection of works demonstrates the sheer breadth of his achievement. As a major 20th century symphonist he is represented by four of his nine symphonies, all in critically acclaimed recordings (‘A clear top recommendation’ wrote Gramophone of A Sea Symphony). Popular orchestral works such as the celebrated Tallis Fantasia and The Lark Ascending are also included. Vaughan Williams’ chamber works are performed by the Maggini Quartet, his greatest contemporary champions; while the sublime Mass in G minor shows the composer’s high standing in the English choral tradition.

Includes:

Symphonies Nos. 5 and 9 | Phantasy Quintet / String Quartets Nos. 1-2 | Fantasias / Norfolk Rhapsody / In the Fen Country / Concerto Grosso | Symphony No. 1, "A Sea Symphony" | Willow-Wood / The Sons of Light / Toward the Unknown Region | Sacred Choral Music | The Lark Ascending
