Prom 17 brought the BBC National Orchestra of Wales to London for a program that was highlighted by two quietly beautiful compositions by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

The final work in the first half(about 31:00)was his Lark Ascending, featuring beautiful solo violin passages.

The concluding work of the concert(about 1:52)was his 3rd Symphony, which despite generally peaceful passages and its title "Pastoral", in fact reflected the horror of his experiences as an ambulance driver in WWI.
