Sylvia Townsend Warner in Maiden Newton - 29 March, 1942
from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 120:
Earlier in the morning V. turned on the wireless into the middle of the sustained B flat of the 9th Symphony. Seid umschlungen, millionen. But in the midst of standing there absorbed, a part of my mind could notice that the chorus singers had the tone of people who had spent a lean winter, and coughed oft - though the soloists were all well-buttered enough.
