Revised and expanded, this book considers recent work on the life and music of this leading English composer. Day presents Vaughan Williams as a part of the great post-Romantic reactionary movement in the company of composers such as Debussy and Stravinsky. The author also demonstrates that the circumstances of Vaughan Williams' life are reflected in his wide-ranging, powerful, and intense music.
