Vaughan Williams on Music

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes in detail the heroic elegy and the triumphal epilogue. The first section consists of a long melody given to the trombone, accompanied by a persistent syncopated figure on the strings. This melody is further developed by the horns, and the section ends with a long-drawn cadence founded on the last bar of the melody. The chapter also states that the theme of the middle section is given to the violins, divided into four parts, and repeated by the trumpets playing softly. After further development, the syncopated figure returns fortissimo, and the first section is repeated in shortened form. In addition, the chapter further discusses that the coda is founded on the middle section, while the drum continues the syncopated figure of the opening.

Keywords:   heroic elegy, triumphal epilogue, melody, syncopated figure, strings, cadence, middle section, violins, fortissimo, coda
