Ralph Vaughan Williams: A Sea Symphony (Vocal Score)

Books | Soprano, Baritone, SATB, Piano

Publisher: Stainer & Bell
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

The complete vocal score with Piano accompaniment for Ralph Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony. Completed in 1909, it is a vast work inspired by, and based on, four poems by Walt Whitman that Williams fashioned into a vast score containing some of his finest choral writing and a highlight of its era. It is non-ecclesiastical work and has a humanist, agnostic viewpoint with a broad, general theme of the Human Soul being a vessel cruising the oceans and seas of life.

This suite for Soprano and Baritone Soli, SATB chorus and, originally, Orchestra, is a varied work that includes elements of Sea shanties and noble pomp in creating a majestic and evocative representation of the sea.
