Kennedy's extensive knowledge of Vaughan Williams's output also enables him to refer back and forth across the works to pick out lines of development and influence. If he hadn’t been an enthusiast he wouldn’t have written it, and I believe enthusiasm is a good thing.

Ursula Vaughn Williams. Whenever I need to look up some details of the life or works of English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams there are two books that I turn to - one is this book by Michael Kennedy, who was a close friend of the composer and who is always a reliable source regarding biographies of composers and performers on the English scene in the 20th. The other sourcebook I use is the biography of the composer by James Day in Dent's Master Musicians series.

Ralph Vaughan Williams OM (/reɪf vɔːn/ (listen); 12 October 1872 – 26 August 1958) was an English composer

Ralph Vaughan Williams OM (/reɪf vɔːn/ (listen); 12 October 1872 – 26 August 1958) was an English composer. His works include operas, ballets, chamber music, secular and religious vocal pieces and orchestral compositions including nine symphonies, written over sixty years. Strongly influenced by Tudor music and English folk-song, his output marked a decisive break in British music from its German-dominated style of the 19th century.

A list of Vaughan Williams's compositions and arrangements under useful headings: Symphonies, Orchestral Works, Operas, Choral Works. Vaughan Williams wrote nine symphonies, no two of which are similar. Each displays its own unique mood. His first was A Sea Symphony written between 1903 and 1909 in which he explores the ‘deep waters’ of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass.

The Works of Ralph Vaughan Williams by Michael Kennedy, Oxford University Press, 1964, 416 ff.

Whenever I need to look up some details of the life or works of English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams there are two books that I turn to - one is this book by Michael Kennedy, who was a close friend of the composer and who is always a reliable source regarding biographies of composers and performers on the English scene in the 20th century. The other sourcebook I use is the biography of the composer by James Day in Dent's Master Musicians series. The biography works through successive periods of the composer's life and there are a few illuminating musical examples along the way to demonstrate points made in the text. Although his melodies often called on those of the first Elizabethan era and of traditional folk songs, his musical structures and harmonies were very much of the 20th century. He wrote nine symphonies but, perhaps because of their length, his best-known compositions are his tone poems, many capturing the atmosphere of the English pastoral scene. There are no appendices to the text and no index, which I find a distinct disadvantage. There is I believe a subsequent edition in 1980 which does have a list of the composer's works and an Index
