“Behold, the sea itself!” Vaughan Williams’s A Sea Symphony takes the poems of Walt Whitman and opens the floodgates to a spring tide of inspiration. Andrew Manze’s Vaughan Williams recordings with the Orchestra have been praised for their “rare sensitivity and warmth”, and the Choir has this music in its blood. Violinist James Ehnes, meanwhile, loves The Lark Ascending so much that he’s come here specially to play it – though when you hear the tunes in Hamish MacCunn’s delightful The Land of the Mountain and the Flood, you’ll wonder why it isn’t just as popular.
