Grove Music does not include this in its work list for Vaughan Williams. Although there were several Shakespeare plays that Vaughan Williams wrote incidental music for, this text seems to be from As You Like It (Act 5 Scene 3?, using an internet reference that might not be accurate), there is no entry in the Grove Music work list for this particularly play. However, Grove Music's list seems complete in other ways and even includes some unpublished works, so the likelihood is that this is from incidental music to something. If that turns out to be the case, this will have to be moved to a page for the larger work.
