Ralph Vaughan Williams Wind Works Composed by Jon Mitchell. For book. Published by Meredith Music Publications. (Catalog # 00317182, UPC: 884088259020)

** Stanton’s Staff Selection **
This exciting work, by one of today's most highly regarded music scholars, brings new light to the more than two dozen works by Ralph Vaughan Williams for military band, brass band and wind ensemble. Vaughan Williams' unique relationship with fellow composer Gustav Holst is examined as well as his relationships with personnel at the Royal Military School of Music, the BBC and the Salvation Army. There's much more in this hard-to-put-down volume for conductors, performers, students and aficionados!

“...the contributions of Jon Mitchell have become a cornerstone of serious scholarship in our field. ...a welcome insight into the life and works of Vaughan Williams. Contained within are valuable insights into the world of Vaughan Williams that, for the majority of us, will be an undiscovered country.”
