1. VW had been invited to sit on the Committee for the Encouragement of Music and the Arts (later the Arts Council) in place of Walford Davies, who had died on 11th March. He remains the only composer to have served on the Arts Council proper, though a number have served on the Arts Council’s Music Panel.
