Vaughan Williams organ music
Posted by Chris Howell on December 8, 2015, 8:30 am
On reading Jonathan Woolf's interesting review of Vaughan Williams's organ music, original and arranged by others, http://www.musicweb-international.com/classrev/2015/Dec/VWilliams_organ_ALBCD021.htm
, it struck me that one obvious candidate for inclusion is missing - Herbert Sumsion's arrangement of the 2 Hymn-Tune Preludes (Eventide and Dominus Regit Me) for small orchestra (1936). Since there are other arrangements by Sumsion included and the discs are not exactly crammed full, it seems a pity these arrangements (which were published though I know nothing about their current availability) were overlooked
