I searched around for a good version of this that goes at a proper speed, with the right umph on bass cello, that also has the volume set properly so you can actually HEAR it.
Finding this video; SEARCH ENDED. This is the ultimate version — on youtube at least, thanks for putting this up.


Sir Adrian Boult, Ralph Vaughan Williams....

What more needs to said.

One must think well of a world,
   No matter how dreadful,
      how dreary,
  ....Where such wonders can exist

Geoff Reynolds

Amen to that my friend


I have this performance and love it. In truth, I had just heard The Lark Ascending on a long flight by a nice chamber orchestra and couldn't endure it. It had been so long since I'd heard the Lark that I needed to derive its origin (successfully). So I searched for this piece just to confirm that I still like it, and I do.


One of my favorite classical selections


When was this performed? Late 70's? Wonderful! Thanks for posting


It's either 1970 or '76.  Not in the same league as his 1940/BBC recording.

7:30, and 7:47 where the violin joins in, I swear that's the riff from "The Lark Ascending". Nice tie-in

In the aeons the universe exists, you were born able to hear this. RIP RVW
