Vaughan Williams 150th : Roots & Branches

Vaughan Williams 150th : Roots & Branches

This exciting collaborative ‘cross-over’ programme will feature eight musicians on stage with folk songs interwoven with some of Vaughan Williams’s well-known works. OXUS will perform movements from Quartet No.1 in G minor, and between each movement Moonrakers will interject songs such as “The Leaves They Do Grow High”, “The Turtle Dove” and other traditional songs, versions of which can be found in the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library (Cecil Sharp House). The ensemble will also play the Phantasy Quintet and an arrangement of “The Unquiet Grave” sung to the air of “Dives and Lazarus” which Vaughan Williams worked on. The programme will include brief introductions on the source of the materials and will take the audience on a journey from traditional to contemporary interpretations of ‘living tradition’ material.
