Ralph Vaughan Williams in Brook Green - 12 December, 1930

from Letter from Vaughan Williams to Holst, December 1930, page 75:

The Organ Concerto [Choral Fantasia] is IT all right, - there is only one place where I have any doubts - & that is - I think - where the chorus first enters in harmony; [it] sounds a little bit respectable & out of the picture - I shd like very much to talk about that place one day. The organ part is magnificent. . . .
