When many 20th-century composers were working with atonality and "chance" methodology, Ralph Vaughan Williams sought to incorporate English folk themes and motifs into his compositions while remaining modern. Vaughan Williams's A SEA SYMPHONY, for orchestra, chorus, and solo voices, is set to Walt Whitman texts, and evokes the spirit of the sea at every turn. This program features vocalists Joan Rodgers and Christopher Maltman, conductor Paul Daniel, and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
