Ralph Vaughan Williams was born 12 October 1872 at Down Ampney, Gloucestershire, England. He may have been the foremost English composer of his generation and certainly keyed the revival of English music during the twentieth century. He used the folk and common music of the land to great effect in many of his later compositions. Vaughan Williams died in 1958.
