"...A song of light..."

A Facebook friend asks his friends "What is your favorite piece of classical music?" This was my choice:

'The Lark Ascending', inspired by a poem of the same name by George Meredith, was begun shortly before the outbreak of the First World War but not completed until Vaughan Williams returned from active service in France.
