From R. Vaughan Williams,
10, Hanover Terrace,
Regents Park,
London, N.W.1.

Dear Mr Greenwood1
Many thanks for your interesting letter and press notice. Please tell your conductor, Mr Field-Dodgson,2  that I wish him every success in his work, and shall think of him and his choir with affection whenever they sing.
May I suggest that you would find other interesting works to do, though perhaps he knows them already, by Britten, Finzi, and Milford.
You ask for another cantata by me:- I think my “In Windsor Forest” would suit his choir, also my new Christmas Cantata, “This Day”. (Both are published by The Oxford University Press, 44 Conduit Street, London W.1.)
Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams


1. Of Christchurch, New Zealand.
2. Robert Field-Dodgson, conductor of the choir of the Royal Christchurch Musical Society 1948-89.
