Dear Bessy

Please forgive my having kept this so long - during Festival Time I had no opportunity of looking at it with a calm view! I think it is charming - & he has got the stress and accent of the English words remarkably well - But it is very difficult!
If I might venture on a criticism I think there is rather too frequent use of that well known stand-by in a difficulty the “indeterminate triad”

Yrs

R. Vaughan Williams
