Two Ralphs and a Beverly.

    Marcia C. Harvey.  
Dear Ones,
You are on my mind, this morning, above all else.  So I wanted to send you a message of pleasure and beauty.  Here is Ralph Vaughn Williams' The Lark Ascending, sides one and two, and sides three and four.
I am thinking how wonderful it is to introduce you to such a lovely piece of music, if you have not already met.  When you go to purchase a copy in your record shop, remember to say Rafe, as in rake, and not Ralph as in in the motorcycle riding mouse.
A bit more on Ralph Vaughn Williams,  a bit more on Ralph S. Mouse, and, finally, the incomparable Beverly Cleary.
for the nonce.
