Mystics


The ‘Mystics’ in Sunday’s Concert find their origins in Ralph Vaughn Williams:

Five Mystical Songs,[ ] a setting of poems by George Herbert (1593 – 1633). Despite his declared atheism, which in later years mellowed into what his wife Ursula described as ‘a cheerful agnosticism’, Vaughan Williams was inspired throughout his life by much of the liturgy and music of the Anglican church, the language of the King James Bible, and the visionary qualities of religious verse such as Herbert’s.
