Ralph Vaughan Williams is considered the most important English composer of his generation.  Known primarily for his symphonic compositions, such as his Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, The Lark Ascending, and his nine symphonies; choral works, and songs; he also composed operas and music for theater, film, and radio.  His deep interest in English folk songs and the works of sixteenth-century English composers significantly influenced his compositional style to break away from the German-dominated style of the 19th century, making him a key figure in the 20th-century revival of British music.
