About

This year we celebrate the 150th birth anniversary of Ralph Vaughan Williams with a special 8-disc boxed set, A Vaughan Williams Anthology, featuring some of the best recordings in the Naxos catalogue. It features the Sea (no.1) and London (no.2) Symphonies, celebrated works such as the Tallis Fantasia and The Lark Ascending, as well as chamber, vocal and choral works. Performers include renowned violinist Jennifer Pike and baritone Roderick Williams, and the award-winning Maggini Quartet, joined by top British orchestras such as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and more.

Vaughan Williams is one of Britainís most illustrious composers, and this specially curated selection of works demonstrates the sheer breadth of his achievement. As a major 20th-century symphonist he is represented by four of his nine symphonies, all in critically acclaimed recordings (ĎA clear top recommendationí wrote Gramophone of A Sea Symphony). Vaughan Williamsís chamber works are performed by the Maggini Quartet, his greatest contemporary champions; while the sublime Mass in G minor shows the composerís high standing in the English choral tradition.
