Notes & Reviews:

This is a collection of stunning music in which the composers have taken inspiration from their surrounding landscape, and from nature. Vaughan Williams' hauntingly beautiful 'The Lark Ascending' is one of his most enduringly popular works, with its title taken from a poem by George Meredith. This serene romance may seem simple, but it is also of considerable originality, capturing the idyllic mood of pre-1914 England.
