Letter from Ursula Vaughan Williams to Alan Frank (OUP)

Letter No.: 
November 25th 1956.

From R. Vaughan Williams,
10, Hanover Terrace,
Regents Park,
London, N.W.1.

Dear Alan,

Here are the prose dialogue passages of Act 1. now made into narrative verse, as brisk as I can manage.1
You will see that in some places where there are cuts I have telescoped, but everything is marked with the page numbers of what it supersedes in the full score.2
Perhaps, if you approve of it, you will have it copied, and then forward the script to Mrs Pattinson at the Academy?3
Acts 2 and 3 will follow as soon as I can finish them.


1. UVW is referring to The Poisoned Kiss.
2. Comment in pencil by recipient: ‘?vocal score’.
3. The Royal Academy of Music, which was planning to perform the opera.
