"The Lark Ascending" by Ralph Vaughan Williams (in two parts), Janine Jansen, violinist
I'm off to the San Diego Symphony tonight to hear, among other pieces, this composition, "The Lark Ascending", by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Here it is masterfully played by Janine Jansen, a Dutch violinist, in two parts. Enjoy!

My paternal Grandmother Mollie (Mary Susannah) is the second daughter behind Leona in the back row. I love the bows in the girls' hair, and I especially love the dress and strong attitude of Aunt Belle (standing far left).
