Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Vally Lasker

Letter No.: 
VWL1220
Sunday [13th August 1939]

From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

My Dear Vally

Are you sure the ‘Gloria Patri’ does not belong to the Nunc Dimittis? I think the Gloria is always sung at the end of it just as it is after the Magnificat.
By the way there are some words omitted in the nunc
‘Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper’ etc.

P.S. Thankyou both so much for your card.
