Letter: Clever Sir Tim

Sir: Sir Tim Rice is apparently upset that he has not been receiving sufficient accolades for his "Evita" lyrics (" `Evita' puts spotlight on creative feud", 18 December) .

He is correct. In his 1976 album and 1978 stage scripts he described Eva Peron as "a new world Madonna with a golden touch".

This line has had to be changed in the recent film to avoid the confusion Sir Tim so mischievously anticipated.
