Description: For transcription collectors: three by the composer himself - the Studies, originally for cello and piano (arranged the year after its 1926 premiere), the Pilgrim's Progress songs (seven were arranged for voice and piano, three for baritone, after the opera's premiere, the composer concerned that further performances would be few) and The Lark Ascending (made and performed in December 1920 before the orchestral version) - and the biggest, of the 1924-25 violin concerto, by Constant Lambert in 1927 and a more imaginative version than the more straightforward transcriptions by Vaughan Williams himself. Texts inclluded. Matthew Trusler (violin), Roland Wood (baritone), Iain Burnside (piano).
