Ailish Tynan soprano

Nicky Spence tenor

Jack Liebeck violin

Will Vann piano

A concert exploring the huge scope of the musical world of Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958). We hear his songs alongside from those in his circle at the Royal College of Music: Rebecca Clarke, Thomas Dunhill, Gustav Holst and John Ireland, from his teachers Parry and Stanford and his own setting of How Cold the Wind Doth Blow, one of most memorable and poignant folk song arrangements, beautifully scored for voice, violin and piano. We also hear the music of his pupils Ina Boyle, Elizabeth Maconchy and Grace Williams and conclude with two gems that had lain forgotten for many years: Vaughan Williams’s Two Vocal Duets, sumptuous settings of Walt Whitman’s poetry for soprano, baritone, violin and piano.
