Program Notes

Folk Songs from Somerset, the third movement from Ralph Vaughan Williams’ English Folk Song Suite is a classic march incorporating four traditional folk songs: Blow Away The Morning Dew, High Germany, The Tree So High and John Barley’s Corn. Using both 2/4 and 6/8 meters, Vaughan Williams has created a unique educational opportunity for ensembles to contrast duple and compound meter.
