Sylvia Townsend Warner in Dorset - 15 August, 1969
from The diaries of Sylvia Townsend Warner, page 326:
Janet rang up with her device for Hilary and his singers to sing for me in the F[rome] V[auchurch] church. And at 6 I was fetched in her van, & they grouped themselves under the arch and set out with The Silver Swan. I almost wept for ecstasy to hear singing in the flesh again. The concert ended with When David heard, twice over.
