Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Alexander Burnard

Letter No.: 
December 26th 1953

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

Dear Burnard,
Thank you so much for your letter. As you have guessed Ursula Wood and I were married last February. You may know some of her poetry, among other things we collaborated in our contribution to the Garland for the Queen.1
I am very much interested in your news, and that things go well with your work. I did not see Goossens when he was in London, as you know I move very little in "musical circles". People are much shocked when they find that I have not got a photogravure of Beethoven hanging up in my study!
Please give my respectful love to Phyllis, and wishes to you both from us both for a happy new year.
R Vaughan Williams

1. For the coronation celebrations of Queen Elizabeth II.
