Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis

This Fantasia by Ralph Vaughan Williams is probably the greatest English musical composition ever for all ages. This reading by Bryden Thomson and the London Philharmonic Orchestra is the definitive one with the double stringed orchestras playing with deep emotion. The other readings I like are the London Philharmonic with Sir Adrian Boult and Eugene Ormandy with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
