On Saturday, May 7, 2022 at 7:30 pm, Vox Philia, in collaboration with Berks Sinfonietta, presents the world premiere of “Folk Songs of the Four Seasons” by Ralph Vaughan William, in a new SATB voicing by John Whittaker. The concert is part of the worldwide celebration of the 150th anniversary of the composer’s birthday.

 

Vaughan Williams was one of the musicians who participated in the first English Folk Song revival, as well as using folk song tunes in his compositions. He collected his first song, Bushes and Briars, from Charles Pottipher, a seventy-year-old laborer from Essex in 1903, and went on to collect over 800 songs, as well as some singing games and dance tunes. The concert will feature other choral and orchestral folk arrangements by the composer.
