MISTRESS AND MUSE: URSULA – THE SECOND MRS VAUGHAN WILLIAMS

by Janet Tennant

This is the first biography of Ursula Vaughan Williams (1911 – 2007) and is published to commemorate the tenth anniversary of her death. Ursula was a distinguished poet, novelist and librettist and second wife of the internationally-acclaimed composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. Drawing on a collection of papers, diaries, letters and photographs that until now have been in Ursula’s family, Janet Tennant presents Ursula’s story – a journey which covers her background and early life within an army family through to her becoming Ralph Vaughan Williams’s muse, lover and, ultimately, his inspirational second wife.
