Balfour Gardiner in London - 1908

from Delius: A Life in Letters 1862-1908, page 353:

I heard your Appalachia yesterday, & enjoyed it very greatly: Beecham did it well, & the chorus, though by no means perfect was much better than at Cassirer's concert. Beecham also did my Fantasia well: it was a great event for me, & a great stimulus.
