Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote that „The art of music above all the other arts is the expression of the soul of a nation.” Fantasia on 'Greensleeves’ includes not only the eponymous English folk song, as we can also hear Lovely Joan – a Norfolk folk song – in the middle of the piece. Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Christmas Overture, initially written as part of Alfred Noyes’ children’s musical The Forest of Wild Thyme, introduces us to the world of festive melodies, such as Hark! The herald Angels Sing or God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. In his concerto Veni, Veni, Emmanuel, James MacMillan, in turn, reaches for the eponymous 15th-century chorale. The piece’s composition also had its symbolic dimension: the beginning dates back to the first Sunday of Advent 1991, while the ending to Easter Sunday 1992.
