Letter No.: 
VWL2586
2nd April, 1948.

The White Gates,
Dorking.

Dear Adrian

It seems to me to be a scandal that during the Parry celebrations his finest work, “De Profundis”, should not be done.1
I wrote to Atkins of Worcester about it.  He says it is beyond them.
Obviously it is a job for the B.B.C..  Please insist on its being done, and soon.
Yrs

RVW
(R. Vaughan Williams).

Sir Adrian Boult,
B.B.C.,
Broadcasting House,
London, W.1.


1.  1948 was the centenary of the birth of Hubert Parry.
