Ralph Vaughan Williams "Fantasia on Christmas Carols"

By December 10, 2012

Follow me on:

Williams Fantasia on Christmas Carols for orchestra, baritone, tenor, and chorus was written in 1912, and has become a Christmastime staple in many a repertoire.  But despite its regular annual performances, it has yet to become a "popular" Christmas classic.  Unlike most of the Christmas music you hear on the radio, there aren't that many recordings of Williams' Fantasia on Christmas Carols.  However, I did find a few.  Here, you'll learn more about Ralph Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on Christmas Carols with recommended recordings.
