Herbert Murrill died on July 25, 1952, at the age of forty-three. Although his output was small, his music, with its clarity and charm and distinction of style, holda an honoured place in the art of our time. Both the Sonatina and the Capriccio in tonight's programme are among his earlier works: the former was written in 1931 for Margaret Good, when she and rhe composer were fellow-students it the Royal Academy of Music; rhe Capriccio appeared in 1932. The two songs (both have worda by Herrick) were composed in 1938; the accompaniment of the first is based on the melody of ' Song 20 ' by Orlando Gibbons , who was a contemporary of Herrick.
