BBC News - Vaughan Williams choral work to premiere next year

An unperformed choral work composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams more than 100 years ago will be premiered next year.

The 45-minute piece, called A Cambridge Mass, was discovered during an exhibition at the Cambridge University Library.

Conductor Alan Tongue, who found the piece, said: "I knew immediately that here was a significant work."

Mr Tongue will conduct the concert, which will take place in March.

WOW!!!

Can't wait to hear it.

His Cambridge music is fun to listen to:

I expect there's a reason it hasn't been heard in 100 years but "Hope waxes eternal in the human breast."

I've sung several choral pieces by him, but way back in my youth.

(Strange people that you are.)
