Vaughan Williams' Sancta Civitas and Dona Nobis Pacem on Naxos
Posted by Jeffrey Davis on May 27, 2010, 2:47 pm
Just a postscript to John Quinn's excellent review of the fine new Naxos CD. There has been another CD recording of Sancta Civitas - a very fine, if unlikely, version under Gennady Rozhdestvensky with the BBC SO, once available on the short-lived BBC Radio Classics label, coupled with an equally fine version of Symphony No 5. Also John might like to know that there was a live performance c 10 years ago, interestingly in the same church where Vaughan Williams had married his first wife Adeline in Hove - although no mention was made of this. It was a lovely concert and an ideal location to hear Vaughan Williams' ethereal work.
