The Lark Ascending Vaughan-Williams Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
Vaughan Williams found inspiration for the Lark Ascending in English folk themes, and from a poem by George Meredith.This tone poem paints an impression of the lark's song and the countryside. This poem was on the inside page of the published score:-

He rises and begins to round, He drops the silver chain of sound,
Of many links without a break, In chirrup, whistle, slur and shake.
For singing till his heaven fills, ‘Tis love of earth that he instils,
And ever winging up and up, Our valley is his golden cup
