Thank You for All the Music

I'm A great fan of Gloucestershire composer Ralph Vaughan Williams' music and I am enjoying the celebrations of his music at the Proms at present, in tribute to the 50th anniversary of his death.

There is something special about English composers which sends a tingle down the spine. They are full of passion and a quintessential tone which sound English through and through.

I was born in Shrewsbury and I have to say On Wenlock Edge holds a great interest and love for me of all of RV William's pieces.

Thanks for the memory Sir.
