My dear Master,

I have the pleasure to send you with this the original autograph score of Hubert Parry’s ‘Blest pair of Syrens,’ which he wishes to present to the College for the Library. It struck me some time ago that as the College possessed the Manuscript of the poem, {1} it would be of interest & of value to them to possess also the original of the magnificent musical setting. Parry was, as is his nature, most unwilling at first to do anything which looked (as he put it) so “bumptious,” but I quieted his qualms on that point.

I send you herewith a letter {2} he wrote to me asking me to forward the score to the Council, & which, as it is really addressed to them altho’ through my mediation, I should be glad, if they wish, to leave in their hands.

Believe me, my dear Master,
yrs very truly
C V Stanford
