RALPH VAUGHAN WILLIAMS

 

'Sinfonia Antartica' (Symphony No. 7)

41:10  
1 I Prelude: Andante Maestoso 09:53
  To suffer woes which hope thinks infinite,  
  To forgive wrongs darker than death or night,  
  To defy power which seems omnipotent,  
  Neither to change, nor falter, nor repent:  
  This…is to be  
  SHELLEY: Prometheus Unbound  
2 II Scherzo: Moderato 05:56
  There go the ships  
  and there is that Leviathan  
  whom thou hast made to take his pastime therein.  
  PSALM 104  
3 III Landscape: Lento 11:03
  Ye ice fall! Ye that from the mountain's brow  
  Adown enormous ravines slope amain -  
  Torrents, methinks, that heard a mighty voice,  
  And stopped at once amid their maddest plunge¬  
  COLERIDGE: Hymn before Sunrise, in the Vale of Chamount  
4 IV Intermezzo: Andante sostenuto 05:32
  Love, all alike, no season knows, nor clime,  
  Nor hours, days, months, which are rags of time.  
  DONNE: The Sun Rising  
5 V Epilogue: Alla marcia, moderato (non troppo allegro) 08:46
  I do not regret this journey; we took risks, we knew we took them,  
  things have come out against us, therefore we have no cause for complaint.

Toward the Unknown Region, Song for Chorus and Orchestra

13:14
  Darest thou now O soul,  
  Walk out with me toward the unknown region,  
  Where neither ground is for the feet nor any path to follow?  
  No map there, nor guide,  
  Nor voice sounding, nor touch of human hand,  
  Nor face with blooming flesh, nor lips, nor eyes, are in that land.  
  Till when the ties loosen,  
  All but the ties eternal, time and space,  
  Nor darkness, gravitation, sense, nor any bounds boundings us.  
  Then we burst forth, we float,  
  In time and space O soul, prepared for them,  
  Equal, equipt at last, (O joy! O fruit of all!) them to fulfil O soul.  
  WALT WHITMAN  
  I know it not O soul,  
  or dost thou, all is a blank before us,  
  All waits undreamed of in that region, that inaccessible land.
