Program Notes

This beautiful folk song has been used as the melody for several popular hymns including: I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say, O Sing a Song of Bethleheim, I Feel the Winds of God Today and several others. It is a beautiful work that seems to float along both melodically and harmonically.

This arrangement is opened by a solo voice with a sense of a lone player on the top of a hill surrounded by mist. The tune is then played in full quartet voicing leading to other variations and rescorings, ending, as it began, very peacefully and reflectively.

- Program Note by publisher


Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus is a work for harp and string orchestra by Ralph Vaughan Williams. The composition is based on the folk tune Dives and Lazarus, one of the folk songs quoted in Vaughan Williams' English Folk Song Suite.

The folk tune was also arranged by Vaughan Williams as a hymn tune Kingsfold, appearing as O Sing a Song of Bethlehem, in The English Hymnal as I Heard the Voice of Jesus say, (no. 574 in the original 1906 edition). The village of Kingsfold is in West Sussex, a few miles south from Vaughan Williams' home at Leith Hill.
