Perhaps the most "English" of all 20th century English composers, Ralph Vaughan Williams was without a doubt one of the most celebrated composers of his era, contributing numerous symphonies, choral works, and stage music to the overall repertoire of classical music. The Ralph Vaughan Williams Society Web site is dedicated to promoting the music of Vaughan Williams, along with providing a great deal of material about the man and his life. The site offers a brief biography of Vaughan Williams, a timeline, and a complete list of his hundreds of compositions. Another section offers detailed information about upcoming concerts where his works will be performed, along with an area where visitors can listen to audio clips of his compositions, including his "2nd Symphony" and the "Fantasia on a Theme" by Thomas Tallis. For those interested in joining the Society, the site is rounded out by membership information.
