Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Gerald Finzi

Letter No.: 
March 27 [1946]

The White Gates

Dear Gerald

Thank you very much for the score1. I have found my copy so now B. White2 has two which he wanted. It wd be fine if you wd come & conduct it. Our orchestra is 2/3 pro 1/3 good amateur.
We rehearse 2.15 Friday May 3 (though only some of the orchestra can come to that) and Saturday morning 10.15.
Would 45 minutes on Friday & 60 on Saturday be enough for you? B. White asks to go through it with me - but if you are going to conduct it he had better go through it with you.
His address is (enclosed).
My love to Joyce


1.  Of Dies natalis.
2. Bradbridge White, the tenor. See VWL2029.
