Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Lucy Broadwood

Letter No.: 
VWL129
[14 July 1902]

Dear Miss Broadwood

Thank you so very much for your very kind card.  I expect you know yourself what a great pleasure it is to receive praise from those whose opinion you value.  I did go to ‘Everyman’;1 I thought it most beautiful; however if my epilogue represents my impressions of it, it must have been prophetically.
I’m afraid a good deal of the last movement does not ‘come off’.  I am going to try and pull it together a bit.2
Yours very truly

R. Vaughan Williams


1. Possibly the 15th-century morality play.
2. The last paragraph probably refers to Heroic Elegy and Triumphal Epilogue, which VW revised in August and September 1902.
