Letter from Adeline Vaughan Williams to Cordelia Curle

Letter No.: 
Friday [Dec 6 1946]

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

Belov Boo

This paper is not too fine to tell you that 'Joanna'is packed up ready for posting to Ealing Studios - full score & reduced score! R feels such relief & now he is going to apply himself to the new set of Bach parts.Michael Mullinar had begun to help him but was being interrupted - one interruption a very good one for him - He has accepted a post of lecturer from Birmingham University "Extra-Mural Studies", a safe income & superannuation, and now they will try to find a cottage outside Birmingham.


Tomorrow R has to spend the aftn in London - to present something to Lady Ampthill who is retiring from EFDS3 - that too rather a waste of time - but the car takes him. Ursula comes again for the Sunday.
Yr A

1. The Loves of Joanna Godden, film music.
2. For the Bach Passion performed at the Dorking Festival.
3. English Folk-Dance Society
