Letter from Ralph Vaughan Williams to Diana Awdry

Letter No.: 
[27 July 1936]

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

Dear Diana

I think your festival would like Judith1 - it's not as hard as the Brahms Requiem - or as “The Explorers”2. Will you let me know as we have to tell Novellos how many copies we want-  350 will cost £45 & 500 £55.
If you take it how many copies would you want? Roughly 45 minutes - but you might make some cuts.
We are doing Carmen for our Div II - wd your Div II like that.
Are you going to be at Hereford on August 27?
Love from

Uncle Ralph

1.  By Parry
2.  The fourth movement of A Sea Symphony.
