Played by GORDON BRYAN (Pianoforte)
THIS is the first of Mr. Morton's series of holiday talks, widening out from the British Isles to some of the more accessible holiday-haunts abroad. His first three talks will deal with England, Scotland, and Ireland, the present talk being devoted to the Cathedral Cities of England. The whole series is designed to help listeners in the perplexing and important annual question, Where shall we spend our holiday ? As the author of ' In Search of England,' and many other books attractively descriptive of the less known parts of the British Isles, Mr. Morton is an admirable guide.
Birds-I, Birds of the South '
MR. MASSINGHAM'S wide knowledge of birds, their habits, their haunts, their characteristics, etc., coupled with his vivid style as an author, make him extremely suited to play this new rôle of listeners' guide to Birdland. His series, which covers birds of most classes, opens with a general talk on the birds of the south. A characteristic note, and one well calculated to win approval, is Mr. Massingham's frequent interpolation, into his more serious. background, of vivid personal adventures and snatches of intimate lore. Mr. Massingham is a son of the late H. W. Massingham , the well-known editor and essayist; he has written several books on Natural History, and he has edited the ' Seventeenth Century Poets.'

4 LTHOUGH Haydn is claimed by Vienna as one of its own musicians, he was by birth a Croat, and all his life the Hungarian folk music had a special interest for him. It crops up in many places in his works ; even the 'Emperor's Hymn,' in one of the best known string quartets, was originally a Croat melody. The so-called ' Gipsy Rondo ,' which is the last movement of this thoroughly happy Trio, is probaby the best known example of his Hungarian music to which he has given that name. It is a vivid translation into chamber music of the verve and gusto of which the native Hungarian music is so full.
