Notes & Reviews:

Though quite popular and well-explored, the catalogue of English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams still boasts a few rarely-heard gems. Richard Hickox interprets these near-forgotten beauties remarkably in an historic performance re-released on Classic Chandos. The secular cantata A Cotswold Romance allows a glimpse of Vaughan Williams at home in the fresh and open voice of his pre-WWI compositions, while Death of Tintagiles highlights his capacity for drama and atmosphere.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: All Saints' Church, Tooting, London (10/03/1997-10/04/1997).
