Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Edward J. Dent

Letter No.: 
[About 8th May 1910]

13 Cheyne Walk

Dear Dent

I feel I didn't say enough to thank you for all you did on Friday - & what an honour I feel it that you & the rest of you shd have thought of this scheme - I hope the musical result did not altogether disappoint you.
I thought the audience was splendid in quality - very sympathetic & attentive - and determined to give the music the best possible chance.
Elwes & the players agreed that they had never performed to a better audience.

R. Vaughan Williams

P.S. If there are any criticisms printed or otherwise (especially yours) adverse or the other way, will you let me see them - cd I also have a few programmes?

PPS Found out what A.Gray  thought1

PPPS When are you going to let Cambridge have an opportunity of hearing your music?

1. Alan Gray, Organist of Trinity College and Conductor of the Cambridge University Musical Society.
