Flos campi, Sheet music Book

Flos campi Sheet music

Edited by Julian Rushton

Description

for SATB wordless chorus, viola solo, and orchestraA suite for solo viola, wordless chorus (SATB), and small orchestra, Flos Campi is one of Vaughan Williams's most enigmatic pieces.

Although the six movements all borrow their titles from the Old Testament's Song of Solomon, the chorus never articulates a single word.

Instead, it serves as a section of the orchestra, creating an elegant vocal texture and backdrop to the viola's haunting solo lines.

The work was premiered in October 1925 by the violist Lionel Tertis, singers from theRCM, and the Queen's Hall Orchestra, directed by Sir Henry Wood.
