About This Item

No Binding. Fine. The letter reads in full: Believe it or not, I am not a Communist, in spite of having become a member of the S.C.R. during the war, as many people did. In fact I had quite forgotten that I did belong to it, and your letter comes as a welcome reminder that I should cease to do so. Not that I think it does any harm to belong to these things, so as to be able to keep an eye on their goings on. Yours faithfully, [signed] William Walton. Usual fold, one pin hole and with some staining to the lower right. William Walton (1902-1983) took leave from military service in the second world war to produce scores for propaganda films such as The First of the Few (1942) and an a morale-boosting version of Shakespeare's Henry V (1944). Waltons broad musical compositions included orchestral, choral, chamber, solo, and film scores.
