This quintessentially British programme reveals the responses of five great composers to the trauma of two world wars. Contrasting with Walton’s stirring film score of 1944, Vaughan Williams’ hymn to the English countryside and Butterworth’s darkly prophetic tone poem provide a poignant backdrop for powerful elegies by Elgar and Parry to “the glorious dead” of WWI.
