Dear Mr. Lowe,

Conferming1 my telephone message if you decide to do my “Flos campi”2 I should like Lionel Tertis to play it.  I thought he was fine in the “Berlioz” last night.3  As regards baritone how about Frank Frederic Sharp?  I thought he sang very well at Glyndebourne.
Yours sincerely,

R Vaughan Williams
