Composers and Their Poets: Ralph Vaughan Williams : Interlude
The preeminent British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) set the model for composers of British songs in the 20th century: he composed several song cycles, setting lyrics by great authors and those little known. Composer Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote many symphonies and music lyrics for cinema that many people aren’t aware of. His songs always seem intensely personal as they
capture unique touches of melancholy.
