Dear Sir,

John Wilson has received and downloaded the broadcasts of York Bowen's unrecorded orchestral works together with the information on their survival-status and has expressed an interest.

Yours, a correspondent.

If anyone's ears and brain are sharp enough to reconstruct the third symphony from those foggy recordings, it'll be John Wilson's. It'll be a monumental task. Sad

I think he knows several "men wot do"...


At the time of the trip down to De Wolfe undertaken by myself and Gareth, Chandos were in fact looking to make another disc of Bowen with the Symphony No.3 and other works to be conducted by Sir Andrew Davis, intending the disc to sit alongside his recordings of the first two symphonies. I remember Meyer de Wolfe referring to him as "Sir Davis", lol...
