Ralph Vaughan Williams - A Sea Symphony
 
01:11:24
- Composer: Ralph Vaughan Williams (12 October 1872 -- 26 August 1958) - Orchestra: London Philharmonic Orchestra - Choirs: London Philharmonic Choir, Cantilena - Conductor: Bernard Haitink - Soloists: Felicity Lott (soprano), Jonathan Summers (baritone) - Year of recording: 1989 Symphony No. 1 for soprano, baritone, chorus & orchestra ("A Sea Symphony"), written in 1903-1909. 00:00 - 1: A Song for All Seas, All Ships (baritone, soprano, and chorus) 20:58 - 2: on the Beach at Night, Alone (baritone and chorus) 33:02 - 3: Scherzo: The Waves (chorus) 40:00 - 4: The Explorers (baritone, soprano, semi-chorus, and chorus) The poetry of Walt Whitman was a rallying point for Vaughan Williams and his fellow students at Cambridge in the 1890's; for the composer, Whitman remained a lifelong source of inspiration. His largest Whitman setting is A Sea Symphony, which Vaughan Williams began writing in 1903, when he was 31 years old, and which he completed, only after much revision in 1909. Whitman's decidedly non-ecclesiastical vision of the soul's journey through life as a sea voyage into uncharted regions certainly appealed to Vaughan Williams, a declared agnostic who once exclaimed "Who believes in God nowadays, I should like to know?" according to fellow Trinity scholar Betrand Russell. Drawing inspiration from the cantatas of Parry and the operettas of Sullivan, as well as the English folk songs he had recently begun to collect, Vaughan Williams fashioned a huge score that contains some of the finest choral writing of its era. - In the first movement, "A Song for All Seas, All Ships," a stern brass flourish is answered by full chorus, "Behold the sea itself." Thematic motives that will inform the rest of the work are immediately sounded: the words "and on its limitless, heaving breast, the ships" are set to a noble, arching theme that appeared more than once in Vaughan Williams' music, from the early unpublished tone-poem "The Solent" to the Symphony No. 9 of 1958. A quicker, shanty-like section ensues, making use of the folk song "Tarry Trowsers," in which the baritone soloist sings "a rude, brief recitative of ships sailing the seas." The dramatic entry of the soprano is heralded by the opening brass flourish; her cavatina extends the imagery into the spiritual: "...for the soul of man one flag above all the rest...emblem of man elate above death [.]" - The second movement is a nocturne, "On the Beach at Night, Alone," for baritone and chorus, in which to a dark rocking accompaniment the soloist muses on "the clef of the universes" and, over a soft march-like tread in the bass (the legacy of Parry), envisions how "A vast similitude interlocks all." The chorus unleashes a forthright and powerful declamation after which the initial mystery of the opening returns, this time with orchestra alone. - A sprightly version of the opening fanfare, with pizzicato strings, launches the scherzo "The Waves" for chorus alone. The quick and lightly scored counterpoint in the orchestral accompaniment underscores the interplay of "whistling winds...undulating waves...that whirling current" through which a ship plies its way. The trio is a broad, Parryesque melody to the words "Where the great vessel sailing and tacking displaced the surface." The movement concludes with alternating fanfares for both brass and chorus. - "The Explorers" is fully half an hour in length, a finale containing some of Vaughan Williams' most noble music. Here the metaphor of the soul as a ship voyaging through the seas of life is most forthrightly expressed. A quiet introduction for hushed chorus ("O vast Rondure, swimming in space") is followed by a slow march describing the "restless" soul of man from its origins in Adam and Eve, climaxing in a vision of the poet, "the true son of God" who will guide mankind through his songs. The soprano and baritone soloists sing of the Soul "taking ship" to "launch out on trackless seas" in a duet of operatic, almost Wagnerian, fervor. A faster section ("Away O Soul!") launches the Soul's journey, with a final note of benediction ("O daring joy, but safe! are they not all the seas of God?") before the symphony sinks from sight in the lowest strings.

Ralph Vaughan Williams - English Folk Song Suite
 
10:31
This is an orchestral transcription by Gordon Jacob of the original piece and was performed by the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields conducted by Sir Neville Marriner. 1. March: Seventeen Come Sunday 0:00 2. Intermezzo: My Bonny Boy 3:21 3. March: Folk Songs from Somerset 6:40 Written in 1923, the English Folk Song Suite is one of English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams's most famous works for military band. Although it is commonly known by the title given above, it was actually published as "Folk Song Suite" - the title which is used on the score and parts. In 1924, the piece was arranged for full orchestra and later for brass band by Vaughan Williams' student Gordon Jacob, when the longer title was used, presumably with the composer's approval. It follows that performances and recordings by orchestras always use the later title, but those by wind bands as often use the original, shorter, title, even though bandsmen regularly talk of the "English Folk Song Suite". The suite consists of three movements: March, Intermezzo and another March. The first march is called Seventeen Come Sunday, the Intermezzo is subtitled My Bonny Boy and the final movement is based on four Folk Songs from Somerset. Its premiere was given at Kneller Hall on July 4, 1923, conducted by Lt Hector Adkins. It originally had a fourth movement, Sea Songs, which was played second, but the composer removed it after the first performance and published it separately (interestingly, this included an orchestration by the composer himself, not one by Gordon Jacob).

A Sea Symphony, by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) - 1. "A song for all seas, all ships"
 
20:51
The lyrics (poetry by Walt Whitman) will follow this.... "A Sea Symphony" is a powerful and moving work, with poetry by Walt Whitman set to stellar music by Vaughan Williams. It has a vast scope and a widescreen horizon. However, despite its scale this work is very personal to me. It begins with a literal celebration of the sea and the spirit of exploration and discovery, but soon sets sail for more metaphysical waters, taking the sea as a metaphor for the soul's journey to Shakespeare's 'Undiscovered Country' that we must all take, one day. It is because of these themes that I have posted "A Sea Symphony" on my YouTube channel as a tribute to my father who died on Sat 5 May, 2012, and who served in the Royal Navy for nearly 20 years. Bon voyage, Dad xx I. A Song for all seas, all Ships "Behold, the sea itself, And on its limitless, heaving breast, the ships; See, where their white sails, bellying in the wind, speckle the green and blue, See, the steamers coming and going, steaming in or out of port, See, dusky and undulating, the long pennants of smoke. Today a rude brief recitative, Of ships sailing the seas, each with its special flag or ship-signal, Of unnamed heroes in the ships -- of waves spreading and spreading far as the eye can reach, Of dashing spray, and the winds piping and blowing, And out of these a chant for the sailors of all nations, Fitful, like a surge. Of sea-captains young or old, and the mates, and of all intrepid sailors, Of the few, very choice, taciturn, whom fate can never surprise nor death dismay. Pick'd sparingly without noise by thee old ocean, chosen by thee, Thou sea that pickest and cullest the race in time, and unitest nations, Suckled by thee, old husky nurse, embodying thee, Indomitable, untamed as thee. Flaunt out O sea your separate flags of nations! Flaunt out visible as ever the various ship-signals! But do you reserve especially for yourself and for the soul of man one flag above all the rest, A spiritual woven signal for all nations, emblem of man elate above death, Token of all brave captains and all intrepid sailors and mates, And all that went down doing their duty, Reminiscent of them, twined from all intrepid captains young or old, A pennant universal, subtly waving all time, o'er all brave sailors, All seas, all ships." Bernard Haitink conducts Felcitiy Lott, Jonathan Summers and the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Vaughan-Williams-Complete-Symphonies-Cantilena/dp/B0002RUAFQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1336645767&sr=1-2

Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony The Waves
 
07:11
A Sea Symphony is a choral symphony by Ralph Vaughan Williams, written between 1903 and 1909. Vaughan Williams's first and longest symphony, it was first performed at the Leeds Festival in 1910, with the composer conducting. The symphony's maturity belies the composer's relative youth when it was written (he was 30 when he first began sketching it). One of the first symphonies in which a choir is used throughout the work and is an integral part of the musical texture, A Sea Symphony helped set the stage for a new era of symphonic and choral music in England during the first half of the 20th century. The work is sometimes referred to as the Symphony No. 1. Playlist with Vaughan Williams http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=99237EDE0FF198F5

Bon voyage, Dad xx IV. The Explorers "O vast Rondure, swimming in space, Cover'd all over with visible power and beauty, Alternate light and day and the teeming spiritual darkness, Unspeakable high processions of sun and moon and countless stars above, Below, the manifold grass and waters, animals, mountains, trees, With inscrutable purpose, some hidden prophetic intention, Now first it seems my thought begins to span thee. Down from the gardens of Asia descending radiating, Adam and Eve appear, then their myriad progeny after them, Wandering, yearning, curious, with restless explorations, With questionings, baffled, formless, feverish, with never-happy hearts, With that sad incessant refrain, Wherefore unsatisfied soul? and Whither O mocking life? Ah who shall soothe these feverish children? Who Justify these restless explorations? Who speak the secret of impassive earth? Who bind it to us? what is this separate Nature so unnatural? What is this earth to our affections? (unloving earth, without a throb to answer ours, Cold earth, the place of graves.) Yet soul be sure the first intent remains, and shall be carried out, Perhaps even now the time has arrived. After the seas are all cross'd, (as they seem already cross'd,) After the great captains and engineers have accomplish'd their work, After the noble inventors, after the scientists, the chemist, the geologist, ethnologist, Finally shall come the poet worthy that name, The true son of God shall come singing his songs. O we can wait no longer, We too take ship O soul, Joyous we too launch out on trackless seas, Fearless for unknown shores on waves of ecstasy to sail, Amid the wafting winds, (thou pressing me to thee, I thee to me, O soul,) Caroling free, singing our song of God, Chanting our chant of pleasant exploration. O soul thou pleasest me, I thee, Sailing these seas or on the hills, or waking in the night, Thoughts, silent thoughts, of Time and Space and Death, like waters flowing, Bear me indeed as through the regions infinite, Whose air I breathe, whose ripples hear, lave me all over, Bathe me O God in thee, mounting to thee, I and my soul to range in range of thee. O Thou transcendent, Nameless, the fibre and the breath, Light of the light, shedding forth universes, thou centre of them. Swiftly I shrivel at the thought of God, At Nature and its wonders, Time and Space and Death, But that I, turning, call to thee O soul, thou actual Me, And lo, thou gently masterest the orbs, Thou matest Time, smilest content at Death, And fillest, swellest full the vastnesses of Space. Greater than stars or suns, Bounding O soul thou journeyest forth; Away O soul! hoist instantly the anchor! Cut the hawsers -- haul out -- shake out every sail! Reckless O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me, Sail forth -- steer for the deep waters only, For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all. O my brave soul! O farther farther sail! O daring joy, but safe! are they not all the seas of God? O farther, farther, farther sail!"

Vaughan Williams - A Sea Symphony, Roderick Williams & Sally Matthews (Proms 2013)
 
01:12:26
Sally Matthews & Roderick Williams From 1903 to 1909, Ralph Vaughan Williams worked intermittently on a series of songs for chorus and orchestra that were to become his most lengthy project to date and his first true symphony. Originally titled The Ocean, A Sea Symphony was first performed in 1910 at the Leeds Festival on the composer's 38th birthday. This is generally cited as his first large-scale work; although Grove lists some 16 other orchestral works composed by Vaughan Williams before he completed A Sea Symphony, including two with chorus; the vast majority of those are juvenilia or apprentice works that have never been published and are long since withdrawn from circulation. Nevertheless, Vaughan Williams had never before attempted a work of quite this duration, or for such large forces, and it was his first of what would eventually be nine symphonies. Like Brahms, Vaughan Williams delayed a long time before composing his first symphony, but remained prolific throughout the end of his life: his final symphony was composed from 1956--58, and completed when he was 85 years of age.

Ralph Vaughan Williams - The Turtle Dove (Tenebrae)
 
03:22
Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872 - 1958): THE TURTLE DOVE Ralph Vaughan Williams was an English composer. His works include operas, ballets, chamber music, secular and religious vocal pieces and orchestral compositions including nine symphonies, written over sixty years. Strongly influenced by Tudor music and English folk-song, his output marked a decisive break in British music from its German-dominated style of the 19th century. "The Turtle Dove" (also known as "Fare Thee Well") is an 18th-century English folk ballad, in which a lover bids farewell before setting off on a journey. The lyrics include a dialogue between the lovers. Vaughan Williams came across the melody in November of 1904, while on a folksong collecting expedition in Sussex. In 1919 he published it in an arrangement for male chorus, but it is more commonly heard in this setting for solo baritone and mixed chorus, published in 1924. The melody is first introduced by the baritone, who takes on the role of the traveler, destined to roam the earth while the love of his heart is to remain behind. As the intensity of the lyric grows, so does the activity of the choir. This continues until the third verse, where the choir's florid lines take on the character of the seas that the traveler must traverse. The work ends quietly, as it began, with the baritone bemoaning the loss of his love. Fare you well, my dear, I must be gone, And leave you for a while; If I roam away I'll come back again, Though I roam ten thousand miles, my dear, Though I roam ten thousand miles. So fair thou art, my bonny lass, So deep in love am I; But I never will prove false to the bonny lass I love, Till the stars fall from the sky, my dear, Till the stars fall from the sky. The sea will never run dry, my dear, Nor the rocks melt with the sun, But I never will prove false to the bonny lass I love, Till all these things be done, my dear, Till all these things be done. O yonder doth sit that little turtle dove, He doth sit on yonder high tree, A-making a moan for the loss of his love, As I will do for thee, my dear, As I will do for thee.

On the Beach at Night, Alone "On the beach at night alone, As the old mother sways her to and fro singing her husky song, As I watch the bright stars shining, I think a thought of the clef of the universes and of the future. A vast similitude interlocks all, All distances of space however wide, All distances of time, All souls, all living bodies though they be ever so different, All nations, All identities that have existed or may exist All lives and deaths, all of the past, present, future, This vast similitude spans them, and always has spann'd, And shall forever span them and compactly hold and enclose them." Bernard Haitink conducts Felcitiy Lott, Jonathan Summers and the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Vaughan-Williams-Complete-Symphonies-Cantilena/dp/B0002RUAFQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1336645767&sr=1-2

Vaughan Williams - A Sea Symphony: Richard Hickox conducting the LSO in September 1984
 
01:06:05
Richard Hickox conducting the London Symphony Orchestra and chorus in a muscular performance of Vaughan Williams' massive 'Sea Symphony', at the 1984 Proms in the Royal Albert Hall, London. The star of the show was John Shirley-Quirk whose baritone contribution was magnificent. 1. A song for all seas, all ships 2. On the beach at night, alone - 18:15 3. Scherzo; The Waves - 29:50 4. The Explorers - 37:37 This channel is not associated in any way with the London Symphony Orchestra, or its own CD label, LSO LIVE. These are recordings made by a LSO fan over a period of 40 years from 1977, and are not rips of LSO LIVE recordings. I have greatly enjoyed these performances over the years and just wish to share them with other music lovers.

A Sea Symphony, by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958) - 3. "The Waves"
 
08:00
The lyrics (poetry by Walt Whitman) will follow this.... "A Sea Symphony" is a powerful and moving work, with poetry by Walt Whitman set to stellar music by Vaughan Williams. It has a vast scope and a widescreen horizon. However, despite its scale this work is very personal to me. It begins with a literal celebration of the sea and the spirit of exploration and discovery, but soon sets sail for more metaphysical waters, taking the sea as a metaphor for the soul and that journey to Shakespeare's 'Undiscovered Country' that we must all take, one day. It is because of these themes that I have posted "A Sea Symphony" on my YouTube channel as a tribute to my father who died on Sat 5 May, 2012, and who served in the Royal Navy for nearly 20 years. Bon voyage, Dad xx III. The Waves "After the sea-ship, after the whistling winds, After the white-gray sails taut to their spars and ropes, Below, a myriad, myriad waves hastening, lifting up their necks, Tending in ceaseless flow toward the track of the ship, Waves of the ocean bubbling and gurgling, blithely prying, Waves, undulating waves, liquid, uneven, emulous waves, Toward that whirling current, laughing and buoyant, with curves, Where the great vessel sailing and tacking displaced the surface, Larger and smaller waves in the spread of the ocean yearnfully flowing, The wake of the sea-ship after she passes, flashing and frolicsome under the sun, A motley procession with many a fleck of foam and many fragments, Following the stately and rapid ship, in the wake following." Bernard Haitink conducts Felcitiy Lott, Jonathan Summers and the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Vaughan-Williams-Complete-Symphonies-Cantilena/dp/B0002RUAFQ/ref=sr_1_2?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1336645767&sr=1-2
