Day 1 of a week of much loved work by English classical composers

It’s almost August, time for holidays and lazy days. I’ll be having odd days off from writing, so service here will be intermittent.

I’ve chosen this week to post the most famous works of English classical composers, perhaps, another time I’ll do the same for Scottish and Welsh composers. Meanwhile here’s a perennial favourite, it was my dear late pater’s, and that’s my reason for it being the first.

The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan Williams, composed in 1914, is top of Classic FM’s chart. Sit back, turn up the volume to hear to hear the floating music in all its delicacy and ethereal beauty.
