Anthony Collins 's Suite is based on three well-known songs by the late
Percy French, a popular song-writer and entertainer who lived in Dublin. The composer has treated the tunes of these songs very freely.
'Hannigan's Aunt' has been turned into a battle march, while the well-known and popular ' Phil the Fluter's s Ball ' has become a lively reel.
When war came Collins was at
Hollywood, where he has since remained, making a great success as a conductor.

Tonight Richard Tauber , now a British subject, sings again with the BBC Theatre Orchestra. The last occasion on which he appeared with them was in the popular ' Saturday at Nine Forty-Five ' series in June of last year. At that time he was appearing as one of the principal tenors at Covent Garden. Since then he has been out to South Africa, where he was playing in Lehar's operetta The Land of Smiles (in which ' You are my heart's delight' was first sung), in addition to giving concerts in all the leading towns of the Union. Since returning to England, he has been busy giving concerts throughout the British Isles.
This evening he will sing some of the arias that people love so well, both from opera and from Viennese operetta, as well as other songs from his repertoire. Don't be surprised if Stanford Robinson turns over his baton to Richard Tauber for the last item of the programme!

Bax does not usually offer programmes to his music, but on this occasion he has disclosed that it is his intention to give an impression of the castle-crowned cliff of Tintagel and ' more especially of the long distances of the Atlantic, as seen from the cliffs of Cornwall on a sunny, but not windless, summer day. The literary and historical associations of the scene also enter into the scheme '.
Whether or not you are familiar with the wild beauty of that unique corner of the Cornish coastline, you cannot fail to feel the surge of the sea in this modern work, just as three generations have done in the inimitable ' Hebrides ' Overture.
1 The gnome. 2 The old castle. 3 The Tuileries: Children quarrelling at play. 4 Bydlo: The Polish ox-waggon. 5 Ballet of the chickens emerging from their shells. 6 Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuyle. 7 The market at Limoges. 8 The catacombs. 9 The hut of Baba-Yaga. 10 The great gate of Kiev
In 1873 Victor Hartmann , a well-known architect and painter, member of Balakirev's circle and close friend of Stassov, the critic, and Mussorgsky, died at the early age of thirty-nine. Mussorgsky was deeply upset, and in the following year when Stassov arranged an exhibition of Hartmann's water-colours and drawings, he was moved to compose a cycle of ten piano pieces based on various subjects from Hartmann's pictures. These he entitled ' Pictures from an Exhibition '.
Mussorgsky appears to have been highly stimulated with the idea, for in a letter to Stassov, to whom the work is dedicated, he says: ' Hartmann is bubbling over, just as Boris Godunov did. Ideas, melodies, come to me of their own accord ... I can hardly manage to put it all down on paper fast enough.'

In this programme you will hear J. M. Bannerman , one of the greatest Rugby forwards who has ever lived, and holder of the record number of Scottish international caps. He is also a keen student of the Highland lore and song. His father was President of An Comunn Gaidheal ach, and his son, who has a magnificent voice, has certainly inherited his love of things Scottish.
