V Williams: Kissing Her Hair

Add To Wish List + £13.99 - Item is discontinued.

This is the second disc from Albion Records which is part of the Vaughan Williams Society.

Albion Records Ltd, a not-for-profit record label, is dedicated to recording rare 20th century English classical music, concentrating on Ralph Vaughan Williams. The label is a subsidiary of the Ralph Vaughan Williams Society and each of the CDs will contain world premi?¿re recordings. The disc again boasts the talents of Iain Burnside, Roderick Williams, Sarah Fox and Andrew Staples.

This second disc 'Kissing Her Hair', is a collection of early Vaughan Williams songs. One, 'Rondel', from which the title is gained, is unpublished and unrecorded; it is serenely beautiful and is as it was written when the composer was only 22. It will change perceptions of the quality of music Vaughan Williams was composing at this early age. This CD was released to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of the composer. The picture on the cover is that of Ralph Vaughan William's first wife Adeline.

\...This second volume of Vaughan Williams Songs from the VW Society fully matches the artistic and technical excellence of its predecessor 'The Sky Shall Be Our Roof'... an hour's worth of unbridled pleasure..."
