Vaughn Williams Symphony No. 5

Vaughn Williams Symphony No. 5

The Vaughn Williams Symphony No. 5 contains fragments from an opera he was working on at the time called The Pilgrim's Progress. The composer was heading into his 70’s when he began the Fifth, he may well have used these fragments as he was concerned that he might not finish the opera and didn’t want any of his work to be wasted.
