  • Ralph Vaughn Williams’ setting of the Walt Whitman poem Toward the Unknown Region launched him onto the international musical scene. Despite the quality of this work, it’s rarely performed today. In this episode we hear the Choir of Christ Church Cathedral (Episcopal) in St. Louis, Missouri perform the work, and hear Cathedral Organist William Partridge discuss the work and why we don’t hear it very often.
