Correspondence

Scope and Content

With John Howlett, former organist at the Odeon cinema in Leicester Square. Relates to the incident when the film Scott of the Antarctic [for which RVW wrote the music] was shown in December 1948, and RVW disliked the organ music following the film [Grieg's Homage March] so much that he wrote a replacement organ piece based on a theme from the film.
