Dr. R. Vaughan Williams, O.M.,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

Dear Vaughan Williams,

The tiniest of points has been raised in Job, but we ought to get it right:
Page 65 of printed score, the 2nd and 3rd bars of the Lento preceding (L1): Is the last note of the clarinet solo, the C, tied over to the next bar, or is it sounded again?  I think it is meant to be tied.
Yours sincerely,

Alan Frank

VW’s note in reply:

Yes it should be tied - as far as I can see there is an almost invisible tie on the last clarinet note of line 1.
