As well as being the composer of that Last Night favourite, Jerusalem, Hubert Parry (died 1918) was in many ways the father of contemporary English music, teaching both Vaughan Williams and Gustav Holst.

Tonight's celebration of his legacy features Parry's own hope-filled Fifth Symphony alongside Vaughan Williams's elegiac The Lark Ascending and two memorials inspired by the First World War: Holst's Ode to Death and Vaughan Williams's Pastoral Symphony.
