Notes & Reviews:

This new release from EMI's British Composers Series commemorating the 50th Anniversary of the death of Ralph Vaughan Williams features the composer's choral folksongs performed by the London Madrigal Singers under Christopher Bishop, coupled with Holst’s Choral Folk Songs with the Baccholian Singers.

From the series of British Composers, Vaughan Williams & Holst with the Choral Folksong Arrangements of London Madrigal Singers with Christopher Bishop and the Baccholian Singers of London.

BBC Music Magazine
RVW's settings again reflect his song collecting; his friend Holst's are more eclectic, including Hardy poems and the Rig Veda. Somewhat Edwardian in the fa-la manner but atmospherically beautiful and finely sung.
