"The Lark Ascending" is a musical composition by British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams. It was written in 1914 for violin and orchestra, and is inspired by a poem of the same name by George Meredith. The piece is considered one of the most popular and beloved English classical works, and is often associated with the English countryside and the beauty of nature.

"The Lark Ascending" is a programmatic work, which means that it is intended to evoke a particular image or story in the listener's mind. The piece begins with a solo violin representing the lark's song, which gradually rises higher and higher until it soars above the landscape. The orchestra then joins in, providing a lush and lyrical accompaniment to the violin's soaring melody. The piece builds to a climax before gradually fading away, as if the lark has flown out of sight.

"The Lark Ascending" has been used in many different contexts, including films, television shows, and advertisements. It is considered one of Vaughan Williams' greatest works, and is a staple of the classical repertoire.
