Here is my peformance of Vaughan Williams' Fantasia on a Theme by Tallis. It is my all-time favorite string piece. Vaughan Williams arranged it for 2 separate strings orchestras and a string quartet.
It features all of the VSL VI strings. I used the Appassionta Strings layered with the Solo Strings for Orchestra 1, Chamber Strings layered with Solo Strings for Orchestra 2, and the Solo Strings for the String Quartet. I also used a small number of articulations from VSl VI String Ensembles 1 & 2 like the harsh Violas, Cellos and the legato Basses.
It's a rather long piece (16:55) so I would recommend settling into a comfortable chair with a glass of your favorite wine before listening.
If you don't have the time to take the entire "sonic journey" then I would recommend starting somewhere around 7:30 with the entrance of the solo violin.
Please feel free to share your thoughts.
