Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis

Ralph Vaughan Williams was a contemporary of Gustav Holst, and, with him and a few others, penned many of the works that make up the standard canon of works written specifically for band in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis has been superbly arranged by Jay Bocook to capture and retain the sostenuto, expansive style, simple beauty and mood of the original orchestral setting.
