Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Gerald Cockshott

Letter No.: 
24th March, 1949.

The White Gates,

Dear Mr. Cockshott,
Thank you very much for your copy of the "Musical Times".
I cannot say, from what I know of Nielson's1 music that it excites me very much.
I am glad to hear that the New Music people are doing your choral work.
When you finish your big work we will try and arrange to go through it together.
Yours sincerely,
R Vaughan Williams

(R. Vaughan Williams).

Gerald Cockshott, Esq.,

Brighton 6, Sussex.
