Product details

This piece pays homage to the famous Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis by English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. Vaughan Williams uses a simple hymn-like choral piece by Thomas Tallis for his work; similarly I have used the famous hymn tune 'Down Ampney' by Vaughan Williams as the thematic basis for mine. Rather than limit the piece to just strings, as did Vaughan Williams, I have used the full complement of orchestral instruments including a large percussion battery.
