Richard is one of our most celebrated music writers and The Lark Ascending explores how Britain’s history and identity has been shaped by the mysterious relationship between music and nature. From the west coast of Wales to the Thames Estuary, from Vaughan Williams to Brian Eno, Kate Bush to Boards of Canada, ‘The Sinking of the Titanic’ to Greenham Common …this astonishing survey celebrates the British countryside as a living, working, and occasionally rancorous environment – rather than an unaffected idyll – that forged a nation’s musical personality.Buy tickets
