Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Herbert Howells

Letter No.: 
VWL1731
[?1947]

Dear Howells

Are these words any use to you - the tune need not be “hymny” - unison or 4 pt as you like - (if unison) the organ part as easy as is consistent with decency - keep the “harmonias”1 in view.2

If not we will try another setting.


1. Either a particular group (unidentified) or the generic amateur choirs. The words referred to are not now with the letter.
