Alan Titchmarsh's Great British Discovery
"He rises and begins to round/He drops the silver chain of sound/Of many links without a break/In chirrup, whistle, slur and shake." Vaughan Williams' pastoral masterpiece was inspired by a poem by George Meredith. Vaughan Williams treats us to the violin as lark, entwining itself around the orchestra and then breaking free, rising to ever loftier heights.
