  7. A song of thanksgiving - Ralph Vaughan Williams

This is one of our concerts which reflects, in a broad sense, on the end of WWI. Shakespeare’s Henry V Agincourt speech and the contemporary Agincourt Carol are contrasted with Walton’s two string pieces written to accompany Sir Laurence Olivier’s celebrated film adaptation of the play. Haydn lived through the rise of Napoleon and the devastating effect it had on continental Europe. After the interval comes a group of tender lullabies before Vaughan Williams’s A song of thanksgiving. The composer was a soldier in WWI but wrote this to commemorate the end of WWII
