Since its formation in 1994, The Ralph Vaughan Williams Society – a registered charity – has sought to raise the profile of the composer through publications, seminars and sponsorship of recordings. Amongst the Society’s successes includes the publication of Ursula Vaughan Williams’s autobiography with its main focus on her relationship with Ralph and the sponsorship of the Albion Opera Festival in London in 1997.
With over 1,000 members, the Society launched its new record label, Albion Records, in 2007 devoted to recordings of rare RVW. It is hoped that every CD will contain at least one world premiere recording.
