Ralph Vaughan Williams succeeded Elgar as the leading English composer of his time. After a period of comparative neglect in the 1960s, his music is returning to worldwide popularity, and numerous CD recordings of his works are appearing. This book, expanded, revised, and brought up to date, takes account of much new work on his life and music, and presents Vaughan Williams as essentially part of the great post-Romantic reaction led by such composers as Debussy and Stravinsky. Day attempts to show how his experiences in World War I, as well as the circumstances of his life, intellectual and musical environment, and education helped him to create an oeuvre that is not only self-consistent, but wide-ranging, with a depth, power, and intensity.
