Topic: Ralph Vaughan Williams

    Ralph Vaughan Williams

    This week I've heard for the first time an excerpt from the Symphony No. 3, "Movement 3".

    What a huge composer. I'm eager to listen his other works.

    Meanwhile, are some of his music has been used in mockups ?

    Thanks,

    SergeD

    Man, are you in for a treat. I was in high school when I first heard "Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis" on the car radio. I was very near my destination but ended up driving way out of my way just so that I could hear the rest of the piece and find out what it was that was playing.

    For string writing there's no better composer.

    Here is a mockup of Ralph Vaughan Williams' "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis" that a GPO user did using Ensemble Building:
