Books:

Elizabeth Poston: Letters to William and Sheila Busch by John S. Alabaster (Editor) and Julia Busch.  The Foreword is by our Chairman, Mervyn Terrett.  Her letters make clear how much she relished the tranquillity of this part of Hertfordshire.   The correspondence also gives many fascinating insights into 1940s musical life.

Elizabeth Poston: Her Own Words. This focuses on her attachment to the house and surrounding Green Belt Forster Country, drawing on the very large number of letters she wrote to her close friends, particularly to Canadian composer, Jean Coulthard from the 1940s, as well as her incomplete autobiographical drafts. It also includes correspondence from the 1930s relevant to Peter Warlock.
