This revised edition of the standard catalogue of the music and writings of Ralph Vaughan Williams includes all known published and unpublished works, with full details of instrumentation, revisions, and first performances. There is much new information on the location of manuscripts and sketches, and there are many corrections to the information and dates given in the existing text. The volume includes a bibliography of the literary works of Vaughan Williams compiled by Peter Starbuck, and an appendix of folk songs collected by the composer. The indexes have been completely updated.

Industry Reviews

`If his treatment of the output is more descriptive than analytical, it is skillfully interwoven with salient episodes of the biography, so that the writing far transends the dryness of a catalogue raisonee, while the personal memoir and selected correspondence added at the end deepens the evocation of Vaughan William's personality.' Bayan Northcott, BBC Music Magazine, Oct 2000. 'His exposition on the composer's life and music is both comprehensive and superlative.' Stephen Town, Northwest Missouri State University, Choral Journal
