By A Customer on December 3, 2000
Format: Paperback
The Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis is one of the most beautiful works ever for string orchestra. Anyone with an inclination towards Ralph Vaughn Williams or just English music would love this piece. The score is easy to read and the 1st and 2nd orchetras and the solo string quartet are easily distinguished.

Naturally, you can dispute the choice of Dover for this compilation of orchestral scores of compositions of Vaughan Williams, and feel frustrated that, for instance, the Fantasia on "Greensleeves" (in Ralph Greaves famous arrangement - who was he, by the way, and what did he do, other than that?) isn't included, or the beautiful "Five Variants of Dives & Lazarus". But it is a matter of seeing the glass half empty or half full, and what the collection offers is highly valuable in its own right. It would be worth the (very favorable) price now demanded for it on the marketplace for the Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis alone - indeed I have paid more than that for the study score of "Five Variants" -, one of the most beautiful compositions written, EVER, and one that you do NOT want to be played at your funeral, because you can be sure the attendance will weep not from sorrow at your passing, but simply because the music is so profoundly beautiful and moving. And the bonuses are welcome, starting with the score of the Norfolk Rhapsody No. 1 from 1906 (part of a tryptich which originated as a project of a Norfolk Symphony - the composer withdrew No. 2 and 3, although the (incompleted) score of 2 was retrieved and recorded by Richard Hickox, Vaughan Williams Pastoral Symphony; Norfolk Rhapsody No. 2). It is a fine piece, wonderfully atmospheric, straddling the stylistic worlds of late-romanticism and impressionism in a manner evocative of Bax and Delius. The Overture to the incidental music composed by VW in 1909 for a production of Aristophanes play "The Wasps" is a boisterous orchestral spectacular.Read more ›

Worth the investment!! Some excellent choices to open the world of the music of this superb 20th century composer. Scores are easy to read even though there are some print issues as to format, but not enough to avoid getting this collection. The Norfolk Rhapsody is simply beautiful and with a solid recording with this score in hand, should give any serious musician great pleasure to study, especially the scoring RVW masterfully utilizes. Along with The Wasps Overture, Christmas Carols, and Tallis, one can get a true insight to the creative style of this composer.

The paper this score is printed on is thinner than expected, so don't get it wet or it will surely dissolve right before your eyes!
