Originally released as part of The English Song Series on the Collins Classics label, this recording includes major works by one of the key figures in English vocal music. Although best known today for his larger-scale and symphonic works, Vaughan Williams was throughout his life an enthusiast and collected of English folk music, something that led to a lifelong commitment to writing for voice and piano. The songs here range from the very beginning to the near end of the composer's career and include the famous Housman settings On Wenlock Edge.
