About

In 1897 Vaughan Williams began work on his exercise for the degree of Doctor of Music from Cambridge University. He finished the degree work – what we now call A Cambridge Mass - in January, 1899 and was duly awarded the Doctorate in 1901. Despite talk of other honours in later years, he was proud to be known as Dr Ralph Vaughan Williams from that date on.

Vaughan Williams’ period at Cambridge was to influence his character, friendships, ideals and musical development for the rest of his life.

World première, performed and recorded at Fairfield Halls, Croydon on 3 March, 2011.
