This magnificent setting of Walt Whitman's poem established Vaughan Williams's reputation as one of the leading composers of the twentieth century.  The idea of a spiritual journey - the passage of the soul from darkness to light, "Toward the Unknown Region" - is central to the text and fully reflected in the music. Beginning softly and simply, the music follows the text of the poem, building through a Wagnerian chromaticism toward a bold and dramatic climax. This was Vaughan Williams's first major choral piece, and its obvious inspirational qualities made it a success from the first.  This arrangement for Concert Band and Chorus adheres to the original orchestration. The choral parts are sold separately, published by E.C. Schirmer
