Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Gerald Finzi

Letter No.: 
Sept 4 [1945]

The White Gates

Dear Gerald

I have discovered a set of parts of the Concerto (
I should like to give these to you if they are any use.
The only thing is, we must not be unfair to the O.U.P. So I suggest that each time you give a public performance with those parts you shd pay a hire fee to the O.U.P. (incidentally I shall get a fraction of that).
If you approve of the scheme, let me know & I will put it before Peterkin.2
My love to Joyce


1. Finzi had asked for a set of parts for VW's Violin Concerto, Catalogue of Works 1925/7.
