This piece combines the simple, elegant thematic material of the Elizabethan church composer Tallis, expanded and modernized through the luxurious harmonies of Vaughan Williams. Jamin Hoffman's lush setting is adapted and re-scored from the original version for two string orchestras plus solo quartet. Fantasia was used with great effect in the recent film Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World. Duration: 2:30.
