1.  The Te Deum, Catalogue of Works 1928/1, was written for the enthronement of Cosmo Lang as Archbishop on 4 December 1928 at Canterbury Cathedral.  Foss replied on 11 October accepting the work for publication.  Oxford University Press had become VW's regular publisher ever since OUP had accepted Shepherds of the Delectable Mountains.
