In a 2011 poll of listeners to choose the nation's Desert Island Discs , the work was chosen as Britain's all-time favourite. [10] From 2007 to 2010, the piece was voted number one in the Classic FM annual Hall of Fame poll , over Elgar 's Cello Concerto , Rachmaninoff 's Piano Concerto No. 2 , Mozart 's Clarinet Concerto and another work of Vaughan Williams, the Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis . [11] In 2011–2013 it was usurped by Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2, but was placed first in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017. [ citation needed ]

“Beat! Beat! Drums!” is based on a poem from Drum Taps, poetry Walt Whitman wrote after his service as a nurse in the American Civil War. He and the nation were stunned by the death toll of over 600,000 in that war’s four-year duration. This movement erupts with articulate fear, depicting a violence that destroys peaceful daily lives. In the examples – merchants and scholars disappearing while others pray, weep, and entreat – we sense the numbers of people being swept into war’s unremitting violence.

Listen out for the soaring violin melody ascends so high into the instrument’s upper register that, at times, it is barely audible; shimmering strings, meanwhile, provide much of the beautifully sensitive accompaniment, evoking glorious images of the rolling British countryside. Midway through The Lark Ascending, Vaughan Williams treats us to an orchestral section that seems to borrow from his love of folk songs; it’s not long, though, before the lark returns, with the melody entwining itself around the orchestra and then breaking free, rising to ever loftier heights.

The Lark Ascending is notoriously difficult to play, but the best performances of it are seemingly effortless and free. It remains the composer’s most popular work, and seems certain to grace the highest echelons of the Classic FM Hall of Fame for many years to come.
