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

Dear Mr Müller Hartmann

Thankyou very much for your discerning & discriminating but kind & encouraging notice of the ‘Passion’1 - I know that the chorus knew their work thoroughly and love it - & that can go very far even if the voices are not first rate & the soloists & orchestra (labouring under extraordinary difficulties) served the cause well & with enthusiasm.
Thankyou once again.
Yrs sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams


1. Bach's St Matthew Passion performed at Dorking. Müller Hartmann had probably reviwed it in the Dorking Advertiser.
