Tuesday afternoon music.

Ralph Vaughan Williams [1872 – 1958].

One of my favourite composers and he was great friends with another of my all time favourite composers, Gustav Holst.

Williams collected folk songs…think Greensleeves and carols. His music epitomizes all that is English.

He also wrote nine symphonies, five operas, film music, ballet and stage music, church music and works for chorus and orchestra.

His ashes are interred in Westminster Abbey, near Purcell.

Here are a couple of videos for you. I have posted these separately before, but they’d become lost in my blog archives. I think they deserve a page of their own. They should be seen and heard.


The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

Performed by Nicola Benedetti.


Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and I hope you enjoy. Have a good day.

Until the next time.




Many moons ago, I started to write. But, as life twisted and turned the only thing I got to write was letters, in my job. Things changed, I left my job and returned to the writing. I have loads of ideas and very little time to do them in.( Sound familiar?) I write, because I need to. When I am unable to write I walk in the shadow of madness. Some folk would argue that I'm there already. As well as writing, I read, paint, garden, knit and have just started making candles. I am owned by a retired greyhound called Daisy. My previous greyhound(Misty) was the inspiration to get writing again. Daisy is keeping that inspiration alive. Thanks for reading. Dorne x

Go on...make my day/life and leave a comment. I don't bite...much!
