1 Review
In addition to his great prowess as a composer, Vaughan Williams was a man of strong character and unflagging energy, who lived a long, full life. He was at the centre of musical events in England for sixty years, a period which for sustained musical achievement is probably unequalled in the history of this country. Ursula Vaughan Williams's intimate and detailed biography of her husband used much material not hitherto available to scholars to produce a balanced and judicious portrait.It is now made newly available as a Clarendon Paperback.

User Review  - Goodreads

lots of letters. Not bad reading, but tedious. Lots of unnecessary details by his second wife. But you get a good sense of the man. Read full review
