R67 Discovery Miles 670 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

for SATB and orchestra or brass Vaughan Williams provided music for royal ceremonies several times during his long career; in the case of this arrangement the occasion was the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.

There are also calmer moments: verse 4, for example, borrows from John Dowland's setting of the psalm, harking back to the previous Elizabethan age. The work was given its first concert performance by the Halle Orchestra under Sir John Barbirolli in 1957, and a year later was sung at the composer's own funeral at Westminster Abbey. Orchestral and brass material is available on hire. An accompaniment for 3 trumpets, timpani, and organ is also available on sale.

Flos campi (Sheet music, Vocal score): Ralph Vaughan Williams Flos campi (Sheet music, Vocal score)
Ralph Vaughan Williams; Edited by Julian Rushton
R260 Discovery Miles 2 600 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

for SATB wordless chorus, viola solo, and orchestra A suite for solo viola, wordless chorus (SATB), and small orchestra, Flos Campi is one of Vaughan Williams's most enigmatic pieces. Although the six movements all borrow their titles from the Old Testament's Song of Solomon, the chorus never articulates a single word. Instead, it serves as a section of the orchestra, creating an elegant vocal texture and backdrop to the viola's haunting solo lines. The work was premiered in October 1925 by the violist Lionel Tertis, singers from the RCM, and the Queen's Hall Orchestra, directed by Sir Henry Wood.

Vaughan Williams's string orchestra accompaniment is available on hire, and Jerry Brubaker's brass, organ, and percussion arrangement is available on sale.

R260 Discovery Miles 2 600 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

Marking the first publication of an early work for chamber orchestra, this study score presents Vaughan Williams's The Solent, composed in 1903.

The score has been edited by James Francis Brown and includes an introduction by the editor. Orchestral material is available on hire/rental form the hire library or appropriate agent.

Scott of the Antarctic (Sheet music, Study score): Ralph Vaughan Williams Scott of the Antarctic (Sheet music, Study score)
Ralph Vaughan Williams; Edited by Martin Yates
R707 Discovery Miles 7 070 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

The film 'Scott of the Antarctic' was produced by Ealing Studios and released in 1948. It recounts Robert Falcon Scott's ill-fated second expedition to the Antarctic in 1910-1913. The film is well-known for its score, composed by Vaughan Williams, which was later reworked to create his Sinfonia Antartica. Vaughan Williams's original score for the film was heavily edited in the studio and halved in length in order to create the final edit. It is now presented in its full, unedited form, assembled by the conductor Martin Yates, allowing listeners to hear the full grandeur of the composer's original for the first time. A recording of the work is available on the Dutton Epoch record label.

Two Chorals from 'Hodie' (Sheet music, Vocal score): Ralph Vaughan Williams Two Chorals from 'Hodie' (Sheet music, Vocal score)
Ralph Vaughan Williams
R67 Discovery Miles 670 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

for SATB unaccompanied These two chorals are taken from Vaughan Williams's 1954 Christmas Cantata Hodie (This Day) - his last major composition for choir and orchestra. 'The blessed son of God' is the fifth movement of the original work, and is a hushed, tender setting of Miles Coverdale's translation of a hymn by Martin Luther. The second choral, 'No sad thought this soul affright', is the penultimate movement of the work, and introduces moments of mystical discordance to the gentle tone set in the first choral.

Three Shakespeare Songs (Sheet music, Vocal score): Ralph Vaughan Williams Three Shakespeare Songs (Sheet music, Vocal score)
Ralph Vaughan Williams
R96 Discovery Miles 960 Shipped within 20 - 25 working days

for S(S)ATB unaccompanied Three Shakespeare Songs comprises three short movements setting texts from Shakespeare's The Tempest and A Midsummer Night's Dream. They were composed as test pieces for the 1951 British Federation of Music Festivals National Competitive Festival. The atmospheric first movement, 'Full fathom five', is mystical and beguiling, with eerie, hypnotic mimicry of bell tolls in the upper voices. 'The Cloud-Capp'd Towers', the slower central movement, recalls Vaughan Williams's Symphony No. 6 in its harmonic language, while the third movement 'Over hill, over dale' is lively conclusion to the set, full of harmonic and rhythmic interest.
