Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Christopher le Fleming

Letter No.: 
20th April, 1949.

The White Gates,

Dear Christopher

I think your string piece1 is beautiful.  Is it published? It ought to be done often.  Do the other string orchestras know about it?  I suppose the silly, stuffy people on the "Musical Times" and elsewhere will label it "folky", but why not?

all my love to Phyllis
