Vaughan Williams Studies by Alain Frogley
Book DescriptionThis collection of essays on Vaughan Williams brings together leading British and American scholars and covers a wide range of topics and approaches, exploring musical language, cultural context, biography, manuscript sources and reception history. Despite Vaughan Williams' seminal importance in British music, international stature as a symphonist, and wider significance as an icon of Englishness, very little new research on his life or music has been published since the mid-1960s. The ten essays presented here examine diverse subjects such as the place of Vaughan Williams in the construction of English national identity this century, the role of rhythm in his symphonies, music for propaganda films, and his unpublished early orchestral pieces; major works such as the Tallis Fantasia and the Fifth Symphony are analysed in depth.

Vaughan Williams's Ninth Symphony, Hardback (August 2001)» View all books by Alain Frogley
This study on a work of Vaughan Williams, traces the genesis of the composer's enigmatic final symphony as documented in the surviving manuscripts. The latter reveal an underlying programme based on Hardy's 'Tess of the D'Urbervilles', and chart the composer's struggle to find the technical means by which to realize his complex spiritual vision.
