One of Vaughan Williams’s most popular works, performed in its original venue.



  • I so love The Lark Ascending

  • Concertgoer says:

    Andrew Davis conducts only the surface in RVW (and Holst). Hear Karajan in this piece for strength from within: Nov. 1953, Kingsway Hall.

  • Duncan says:

    Herbert Howells and Ivor Gurney attended the first performance in Gloucester Cathedral and were so enthralled by it that they wandered the streets of Gloucester for most of the night, talking about it.

  • R. Brite says:

    A conductor friend turned me on to this clip a while back. I love its echo-y sound.

  • JussiB says:

    should have performed in an Anglican church not a Catholic church.
