R. Vaugham Williams: Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis, and J. Turina: La oración del torero

Ralph Vaughan Williams’s Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis (1910) is based on a work from the sixteenth century. The sound of the dialogue between different groups of instruments imitates the different registers of an organ and, in its form, the piece evokes the fantasias of the Elizabethan period. Here, it is coupled with La oración del torero (1927), one of Joaquín Turina’s best-known works, originally composed for lute quartet.
