Ralph Vaughan Williams' settings of Shakespeare's Sonnet 71 and Ben Johnson's 'Echo's Lament for Narcissus' are here published for the first time, and present a fascinating insight into the early development of one of Britain's greatest 20th Century composers. Written when Vaughan Williams was a student at the Royal College of Music, studying under Charles Standford, the two songs are an excellent and contrasted pair - the first addressing genuine mourning; the second a delightful madrigalian parody - and both make important and exciting additions to the choral repertory.

  • Sonnet 71 (William Shakespeare) 
  • Echo's Lament for Narcissus (Ben Johnson)
