As musical editor of the 1906 edition of The English Hymnal, the British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams forever changed hymnody both with his stunning original hymn tunes, which are some of the most beloved of the twentieth century and with his arrangements of folk tunes and earlier sacred melodies into hymns. This collection by Douglas E. Wagner celebrates Ralph Vaughan Williams's tremendous contribution to sacred song with a variety of pieces: some based on his original hymn tunes (like SINE NOMINE or DOWN AMPNEY) and some based on tunes that his arrangements made popular (like HYFRYDOL or BRYN CALFARIA).
