Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Reading Choral Society, Pennsylvania

Letter No.: 
[late 1941?]

Many thanks to the RCS1 for presenting my cantata, 'Dona Nobis Pacem.'  Britain and America are now going forward together in peace through freedom.

General notes: 

Quoted in a history of the Reading Choral Society (1975) which quotes an article in the Reading Eagle newspaper headed 'English Composer Lauds Local Chorus'. Their performance of Dona Nobis Pacem was on April 30 1941, according to a notice in the same newspaper the previous day.
