Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine as thoroughly as possible, with the sources at hand, the song cycle, "On Wenlock Edge," by Ralph Vaughan Williams. The study will include a brief summary of the life of Vaughan Williams, pertinent statements about his music, a general analysis of the entire composition and a detailed analysis of two songs from the cycle. The two songs receiving more detailed analysis were chosen for their contrast and variety of musical ideas.
