Richard King – The Lark Ascending
Richard King – The Lark Ascending: The Music of the British Landscape
On a chronological journey that takes him from postwar poets and artists to the late twentieth century and the free party scene of the 1990s, Richard King explores how Britain’s history and identity has been shaped by the mysterious relationship between music and nature. From the far west of Wales to the Thames Estuary and the Suffolk shoreline, taking in Brian Eno, Kate Bush, Boards of Canada, Dylan Thomas, Gavin Bryars, Greenham Common, The Kinder Scout Mass Trespass, and of course Ralph Vaughan Williams, The Lark Ascending listens to the land and the music that emerged from it, to chart a new and surprising course through a familiar landscape.
