Ralph Vaughan Williams

Ralph Vaughan Williams

Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958)

The eminent English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams was born on 12 October 1872 at the vicarage in Down Ampney, Gloucestershire, the youngest of the three children of the Revd Arthur Charles Vaughan Williams (1834-1875) and his wife, Margaret Wedgwood (1842-1937). When Arthur died in 1875, his widow and children moved to Leith Hill Place, Surrey, Margaret's family home. In 1883 Ralph began preparatory school at Field House, Rottingdean, Sussex, and early in 1887 he went on to Charterhouse School, which he attended for three and a half years. He played in the orchestra at Charterhouse and in 1888 organized a concert there which included a piano trio composed by him.
