William Vann, Chapel Choir Of The Royal Hospital Chelsea Earth And Sky

”Earth and Sky” comprises fourteen choral works written by Ralph Vaughan Williams and a further eight arrangements made by him between 1896 and 1954 - very nearly the length of his working career. 21 of the 22 tracks are world premiere recordings and are performed by the Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea and William Vann.

This varied collection includes salon music, folk song settings, hymns and anthems, patriotic songs and finally Gaelic songs in English translation. Vaughan Williams never repeated himself, and the variety on display here is quite astonishing.

The recording was made in February 2018 in St Jude-on-the-Hill, Hampstead. William Vann directs the Chapel Choir of the Royal Hospital Chelsea and plays the piano for four tracks. Hugh Rowlands accompanies a further 9 tracks on the church’s Willis organ.
