Membership OfficerMark Hammett


The Society, representing England’s foremost symphonic composer, encourages and supports RVW-related concerts, recordings, festivals, and events as well as recordings of lesser-known works by the composer through our own recording label, Albion Records.

Benefits of membership include a regular Journal which contains scholarly articles as well as interesting news, events and reviews of the latest concerts and CD releases, together with a select discography. There are opportunities to meet socially, with invitations to special events and advance information of future concerts.

The Society has a recording subsidiary, Albion Records, which makes recordings available (in CD and download formats), mainly of music by Vaughan Williams, and always including world premières. To date we have issued about 20 albums with more than 50 world premières.
