Ralph Vaughan Williams' Two Partsongs sets Shakespeare's Sonnet 71
and Ben Johnson's Echo's Lament for Narcissus to music and are
published here together for the first time, and present a
fascinating insight into the early development of one of Britain's
greatest 20th Century composers. Written when Vaughan Williams was
a student at the Royal College of Music, studying under Charles
Stanford, the two songs are an excellent and contrasted pair - the
first addressing genuine mourning; the second a delightful
madrigalian parody - and both make important and exciting additions
to the choral repertory. Arranged for unaccompanied SATB mixed
voices choir. The Choral Programme Series is now a well-established
programming tool for many choirs as it offers a wealth of fresh
material from many eras and in many styles.
