About

Ralph Vaughan Williams composed hundreds of song cycles set to poems by Stevenson, Shakespeare, Chaucer, Rossetti, Whitman, Bunyan, Blake, Housman, and other celebrated writers. Composed between 1901 and 1904, his Songs of Travel and Other Verses are inspired by Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson’s eponymous collection, which tells the tale of a wandering poet who travels around the world in search of a light to give new life to his broken heart, and the work is a sort of musical-spiritual sister to Schubert’s Die Winterreise.
