I am so pleased to discover that my favourite piece of classical music, The Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams, was voted #1 in the Classic FM Hall of Fame – and I didn’t even know about it to vote!
From about 11 minutes onwards is my favourite part. The soaring orchestra always bring tears to my eyes!
A lot of people call this a cozy rural piece, but I think for me there are some truly sad moments in it, and yet some beautiful celebratory passages.
Simply the best 15 minutes of your life!
