Sylvia Townsend Warner in Cambridge - 30 July, 1930

from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 65:

The music this evening was another, very lovely C. Wood Introit, Tomkins service, Byrd's Haec Dies, and C. W [ood] O gladsome light thrown in as an extra....such beautiful things, such friendliness ordained to us hundreds of years ago. For we owe this to Henry VI and William Byrd really.
