Browse: Vaughan Williams - The Lark Ascending

This page lists all recordings of The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958).

The Lark Ascending is the nation’s favourite piece of music, according to Classic FM’s Hall of Fame 2008.

Inspired by George Meredith’s poem of the same name, the violin’s soaring lines and fluttering trills represent the song of the lark, whilst the orchestral accompaniment provides the backdrop against which the lark flies.

Vaughan Williams composed the work for violin and piano in 1914, but didn’t orchestrate it until after the First World War.
