Music Help!

Postby Tonyblack » Fri Mar 18, 2011 8:24 am

I'm going crazy trying to recognise a piece of music that was used in the BBC drama documentary: 'Spanish Flu - The Forgotten Fallen' that was on last night.

You can hear the piece of music HERE.

I'm fairly sure it's a Vaughan-Williams piece and I have loads of recordings of his music, but am drawing a blank. I know this piece so well, but can't think what it is. :oops:

I would appreciate any help in tracking it down. :)

Can't help I'm afraid, although I did just find this site for finding trailer music if you didn't know it already. :)

Okay that made me cry.

Edit: The music sounds Irish.

One final detail underlined the exceptional quality of this programme. Instead of drenching Peter Harness’s script in a synthesised score, Hardy used extracts from classical masterpieces: Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition for bustling at the town hall and the sublime slow movement of Schubert’s Last Piano Sonata for the dying rooms. What an eerily clever choice: music written by a man facing death in his early 30s. That was the age group preferred by the Spanish flu, which turned the strong immune systems of healthy young people against them. As Niven observed: “It likes a fight.”

Much better... but wait there is MORE.

Thanks Del! I'd spotted the Mussorgsky and Schubert pieces. It's that choral/string piece that I'm so keen to identify though. :D

Thank you thank you thank you! :D

No wonder it was so familiar - I had it as a Christmas present from Sharlene last year. :oops:

Here it is! :D

Thank you again! :D
