Vaughan Williams’s funeral

September 11 2013

Newhope123: “This is a very brief extract of what could be heard on Friday September 19th 1958 at 11.30 am, when the Funeral Service of Ralph Vaughan Williams was broadcast live on the radio from Westminster Abbey.”

Does the BBC have a full tape? Commentator: Richard Dimbleby. Hymn: Vaughan Williams, Come Down, O Love Divine or Down Ampney, 1906 (Discendi, amor santo by Bianco da Siena, c 1400).

St Anne (old post).
