Ralph Vaughan Williams composed this Passacaglia, apparantly unpublished hitherto, for the wedding on 9 September 1933 of Miss Barbara Lawrence to Alfred Gordon Clark (see M. Kennedy, A Catalogue of the Works of Ralph Vaughan Williams, 2nd edition (OUP, 1996), p.142). The bridegroom was later Judge Gordon Clark; his pseudonym as a novelist was Cyril Hare.
