Dear Greaves

Certainly the hobgoblins & mediums should not appear in the chorus edition, except, of course, when they sing in the choral ensembles.1
Yours sincerely

R. Vaughan Williams


1.  Greaves was apparently preparing the published chorus parts for Sir John in Love, Catalogue of Works 1928/3.  He was later known for adapting ‘Greensleeves’ from the opera into the Fantasia on Greensleeves, Catalogue of Works 1934/1.
