LAST week Mr. Allen Walker talked of the historic Abbey Church of Westminster. This afternoon he will describe the less well known but very interesting buildings that lie behind it, where, grouped around the beautiful cloisters, still survive the domestic quarters of the monks, and the newer habitation of Westminster School.

From the PRINCE OF WALES
Sung by HELEN HENSCHEL (Soprano)
THE wholo history of man's development in the use of his hands and of his tools can bo traced in the story of the metals that he has, one by one, brought under his sway. In this new series of talks, Professor Desch, of Sheffield University, who is one of the greatest authorities on Metallurgy, will trace man's progress in the mastery of the metals, from the time when only gold was known to him, and that used only for ornament, through the discovery and conquest of bronze, iron and steel, to the strange new alloys and rare metals that the modem laboratory produces for the modern engineer.

A PIANOFORTE RECITAL
THERE is a Breton legend that the Cathedral
-L of Ys was buried beneath the sea. On a calm day, the peasants used to declare, the tolling of the bolls and the chanting of a phantom congregation could be heard, faint and sweet, from the depths.
Debussy, in his short piece, has given us a mystically imaginative suggestion of this ghostly music. mHERE is a story that one day Schubert met J- a friend, in the garden of a country inn, who was reading Shakespeare. Schubert picked up the book, which opened at Cymbeline, at the poem ' Hark, hark, the lark at Heaven's gate sings,' which Cloten's musicians perform to Imogen, to wake her sweetly in the morning. ' Oh ! ' said Schubert, 'I have thought of such a lovely tune for that ! What a pity I haven't, some music paper here ! ' The friend took up the bill of fare and drew some staves on it, and Schubert at once wrote the tune that so beautifully fits the poem, and that Liszt decorated to make a piano solo.
