Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to the Rev. Frank Rust

Letter No.: 
[July 1958]

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

Dear Mr Rust-

I am delighted to hear that you are resurrecting the Sons of Light.  I thought [they] were quite dead.  I do not know whether you will be interested but I have a simplified version of the orchestral score which I am sure the O.U.P. would lend you to look at.  It involved a small cut near the beginning of the “moon section” which I think is a great improvement.
[Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams]
