Sinfonia Antartica (Symphony No. 7)

Ralph Vaughan Williams / David Matthews
Study score
In stock


for soprano solo, SSA chorus, and full orchestra
This new edition of Vaughan Williams's Symphony No. 7, the Sinfonia Antartica, has been prepared by David Matthews with support from the Vaughan Williams Charitable Trust. The work was drawn from the music Vaughan Williams provided for the film Scott of the Antarctic in 1947 and was completed in 1952. In it the composer skilfully evokes the sparse beauty and grandeur of the landscape with a large orchestra and percussion section, including - famously - a wind machine, to create a work of great power and intensity. This new edition contains an introduction and textual commentary and is published as a full score, study score, and women's chorus, with all performing material on hire.
