A Song Cycle for tenor voice, by Vaughan Williams , on poems from A. E. Housman 's ' A Shropshire Lad ', sung by Gervase Elwes with the London String Quartet
Vaughan Williams 's song cycle ' On Wenlock Edge ', the words of which are from Housman's ' A Shropshire Lad', was first sung by Gervase Elwes in 1909. This cycle may well be described as a masterpiece of the composer's early period. The music is a perfect interpretation of the tragic beauty of Housman's words and is a masterly exposition of descriptive writing in the more subtle meaning of the term.
