Some Lovely Music for You

I’ve loved the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams every since I was in high school. Yesterday I found these lovely recordings of my three favorites works of Vaughan Williams on Youtube. Hope you enjoy them.

First up, Ralph Vaughan Williams’ sublime Mass in G Minor, sung by the choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, directed by Stephen Darlington.

Next up is the BBC Symphony Orchestra conducted by Andrew Davies, performing Vaughan Williams’ “Fantasia on a Theme By Thomas Tallis.”

Finally, “The Lark Ascending” — Soloist Janine Jansen plays her 1727 Stradivari “Barrere” violin, at the BBC Proms 2003, Royal Abert Hall.
