Thread Name: Vaughan Williams Memorial Library & its importance
Subject: RE: Vaughan Williams Memorial Library & its importance
I hope RVW would have appreciated the pleasant irony that the Vaughan Williams Memorial Library is in central(ish) London while Surrey County Council, as far as I know, still holds the performing arts library for the county along with some VW material at the Denbighs vineyard premises near the town of Dorking with which he was connected.
That said - and I can just read that sentence in one breath - the collection is of national importance for England and is kept in the capital of England. Probably more conveniently accessible to as many people as possible in England exactly where it already is.
