Review quote

This is an interesting find . . . a lovely piece that should give enjoyment to choirs and audiences alike. * Jonathan Wikeley, Music Teacher, Sept 09 * One novelty that I particularly enjoyed was the discovery of a 1943 carol for upper voices by Vaughan Williams, My Dear Heart, full of that special quality, both remote yet voluptuous that the composer reserves for such forces. * Matthew Greenall, The Singer, December 09 * An unexpected Christmas delight is the first publication of a carol by Vaughan Williams. Probably written in 1943, it is a minor gem, with that kind of restrained voluptuousness that sometimes characterises Vaughan Williams' writing for combined female voices. * The Singer, October 2009 *show more

About Ralph Vaughan Williams

In the fifty years since his death, Vaughan Williams has come to be regarded as one of the finest British composers of the 20th century. He has a particularly wide-ranging catalogue of works, featuring everything from choral works to symphonies, from concerti to opera. His searching and visionary imagination, combined with a flexibility in writing for all levels of music-making, has meant that his music is as popular today as it ever has been.show more
