Sep 20 [1936]

From R. Vaughan Williams,
The White Gates,
Westcott Road,
Dorking.

Dear Sir

I should be glad to conduct  “Dona Nobis Pacem”1 on Nov 13th provided
(1)  I have a full orchestra (with sufficient strings including your best players)
(2)  I am allowed sufficient time for rehearsal (The work plays about 40 minutes)
As regards soloists - Mr Roy Henderson will be excellent - As regards Miss Renée Flynn I cannot remember ever having heard her sing - the type of voice required is like Mrs Baillie or Miss May Blyth capable of clear pp tone on high notes.
Yours faithfully

R Vaughan Williams
