'Greetings from Joan to Jean'

Some beautiful, serene, and lesser known, Vaughan Williams: the Epilogue from the Second String Quartet in A Minor, written in 1942-3.
The movement is subtitled 'Greetings from Joan to Jean' (the work was dedicated to the violist Jean Stewart) and contains material originally intended for a film about St Joan of Arc.
