Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist - Artist (Sample). While I prefer the sound on Hickox's recording on Chandos and have a slight preference for his Pilgrim (Gerald Finley) over this recording (with John Noble), I still prefer this recording overall, in spite of these reservations, becasue of Boult's great authority, passion, and vision in bringing out the beauty of this music. A different take on the Pilgrim's Progress is provided in Vaughan Williams' radio play from the 1940's.

The Pilgrim's Progress is an opera by Ralph Vaughan Williams, based on John Bunyan's allegory The Pilgrim's Progress. The composer himself described the work as a 'Morality' rather than an opera. Nonetheless, he intended the work to be performed on stage, rather than in a church or cathedral. Vaughan Williams himself prepared the libretto, with interpolations from the Bible and also text from his second wife, Ursula Wood.
