Vaughan Williams Toward the Unknown Region

The Cantique is a setting of words by the 17th century dramatist and poet Jean Racine. It was Faurés first significant award-winning composition, written in 1865 at the age of twenty, whilst he was in his final year at the École Niedermeyer.

The Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny) is an orchestrally accompanied choral setting of a poem written by Friedrich Hölderlin and is one of the shortest of Brahms's major choral works. It is considered to be one of Brahmss best, along with Ein deutsches Requiem. In October 1871 it premièred in Karlsruhe.

Ralph Vaughan Williams, one of the most influential figures in English music, used the words from American poet Walt Whitmans script, Toward the Unknown Region, to create a remarkable marriage of music and text. This inspiring piece premièred in Leeds in 1907.
