- Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, 15′
- Bax November Woods , 20′
- Vaughan Williams Five Tudor Portraits , 45′
For Vaughan Williams, the spirit of England wasn’t just in the tranquillity of his radiant Tallis Fantasia. His Five Tudor Portraits turned the roistering antics of a bunch of Elizabethan eccentrics into the most uproariously enjoyable choral showpiece you’ve never heard. Arnold Bax, meanwhile, sings of doomed romance in a wintry twilight. John Wilson simply loves this music: join him, and rediscover a musical heritage that belongs to us all.
Part of The Spirit of England.
CBSO+ 6.15pm: Broadcaster and author Stephen Johnson talks about Vaughan Williams as the founder of the nationalist movement in English music.
