Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Leonard Isaacs

Letter No.: 
Jan 11th 1942

The White Gates,

Dear Mr Isaacs1

Herewith score & parts of 49th // l prelude.2 I have left out 2 sax, 3rd trpt & C. Fag have written out a new score and amended the parts accordingly.
I believe I am quite free to have it performed as a concert piece, but I suggest you write as an act of courtesy to secretary Ortus Films Ltd. Denham Studios Denham Uxbridge Middlesex telling them of the performance.
If you do it will you tell me the date & time & whether it can be heard here & on what wave length.
Yours sincerely
R. Vaughan Williams
