    He was an angry, passionate and explosive composer. Indeed, the fugue's subject is almost a twin to the opening theme of Flos campi. How people could have considered this music lightweight amazes me. Calvocoressi to Maurice Ravela more modernist, less dogmatic musician than d'Indy. Vaughan Williams, however, comes up with one irregular phrase after another, at one extended point, moving along in either seven or five large beats in a poetic meter of four. Hickox nails these things, to the extent of bringing out the demonic motive in the first pages of the score — something I've never heard before.

    Seven years in gestation. The opening tosses out a slew of ideas, one Vaughan Williamss ninth symphony book the other, obsessing on a minor third, before it settles into a "galumphing" scherzo, a theme that splits into related grotesque and lyric parts. He did not greatly like the piano, and was pleased to begin violin lessons the following year. When in Vaughan Williams began to sketch the songs for chorus and orchestra that became A Sea Symphony, Elgar had not yet emerged as a symphonist. This is the first thing that occurs in the symphony; the brass fanfare is a B flat minor chord, followed by the choir singing the same chord, singing Behold, the Gibson is good in the 1st and 3rd movements, less convincing in the others.

    In the late a cappella choral music especially, each part is equally important. Vaughan Williams thought of Bach as the greatest composer of all and, as works like the "Rhosymedre" prelude for organ and the Concerto accademico demonstrate, actually learned something from him. He received an enthusiastic welcome from large audiences, and was overwhelmed at the warmth of his reception. Nevertheless, Vaughan Williams had never before attempted a work of quite this duration, or for such large forces, and it was his first of what would eventually be nine symphonies. And I thought it was a very understated, stiff-upper lip, very sad piece of music.
