For SATB wordless chorus, viola solo, and orchestra This suite from 1925 is one of Vaughan Williams' most enigmatic pieces. The chorus never articulates a single word, and instead serves as a section of the orchestra, creating an elegant vocal texture and backdrop to the viola's haunting solo lines.
