Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Sir Henry Wood

Letter No.: 
Feb 5. [1944]

The White Gates

Dear Wood

I agree that the oboe concerto would not be suitable for the Albert Hall - would you tell me (quite at your leisure) whether you would consider a suite made out of my “Flemish Farm” film1 as a “new work” under the terms of the act?2  It is, I think, some of the best film music I have written & wd make a good suite.

R Vaughan Williams

1.  Music for the film Story of a Flemish Farm.
2. Wood was apparently asking for a new work for the Promenade concerts.
