From the time of their marriage in 1953, until his death, aged 85, just five years later in 1958, Ralph Vaughan Williams and his wife Ursula lived at 10 Hanover Terrace nearby in Regent’s Park. The composer’s ashes are now interred near the burial plots of Henry Purcell and Charles Villiers Stanford in the north choir aisle of Westminster Abbey. This concert serves up a musical feast of this most English of composers, including his song cycle for tenor On Wenlock Edge, the hauntingly beautiful Mass in G Minor, and excerpts from his Ten Blake Songs for oboe and tenor.
