Biographical Sketches

Ralph Vaughan Williams

Composer

With his friend Gustav Holst, Ralph Vaughan Williams cut the ties that had bound English music to Germany and Italy. Instead of looking for good models on the Continent, these two young Englishmen decided to seek them at home in England’s own past. Vaughan Williams’ music speaks of things English, but it also gives the English view of things eternal. (WGM)
