Cambridge Companions to Music synopsis

An icon of British national identity and one of the twentieth century's most prolific performers, Ralph Vaughan Williams was misunderstood as much as he was praised; his international influence and lasting influence on such diverse fields as church music and dozens of films and folk music were not appreciated enough. This volume brings together a team of leading scientists, examines all areas of the author's production of new perspectives, and re-evaluates cultural policies to defend his life throughout his life in order to make music for ordinary people.

Surveys of major species are complemented by chapters exploring topics such as the BBC's relationship with the BBC and his studies with Ravell. Uniquely, the book also includes special interviews with leading live composers Peter Maxwell Davis, Pierce Hellawell, Nicolas Levano and Anthony Payne.

Companion is a vital resource for all interested in this pivotal figure of modern music.
