Om boka

The Choral-Orchestral Works of Ralph Vaughan Williams: Autographs, Context, Discourse combines contextual knowledge, a musical commentary, an inventory of the holograph manuscripts, and a critical assessment of the opus to create substantial and meticulous examinations of Ralph Vaughan Williams' choral-orchestral works. The contents include an equitable choice of pieces from the various stages in the life of the composer and an analysis of pieces from the various stages of Williams' life. The earliest are taken from the pre-World War I years, when Vaughan Williams was constructing his identity as an academic and musician-Vexilla Regis (1894), Mass (1899), and A Sea Symphony (1910). The middle group are chosen from the interwar period-Sancta Civitas (1925), Benedicite (1929), Magnificat (1932), Five Tudor Portraits (1935), Dona nobis pacem (1936)-written after Vaughan Williams had found his mature voice. The last cluster-Thanksgiving for Victory (1944), Fantasia (Quasi Variazione) on the 'Old 104' Psalm Tune (1949), Sons of Light (1950), Hodie (1954), The Bridal Day/Epithalamion (1938/1957)-typify the works finished or revisited during the final years of the composer's life, near the end of the Second World War and immediately before or after his second marriage (1953).
