ANDRE MANGEOT/BORIS PECKER (Violins, leading alternately)
FRANK HOWARD (Viola)
HERBERT WITHERS (Violoncello)
THIS fine work of Brahms' maturity (he wrote it in 1873, when he was forty) is in four
The material of the First Movement is given out by the First Violin-the first main tune at the start, and the, other not long after, following a climax and a murmur on the Viola.
The Second Movement is a Romance, and richly does Brahms weave his parts to create the romantic feeling. The second tune, with its quietly urgent broken utterance, reminds us a little of the second tune in the first
In the Scherzo there is breadth, happy activity; in its middle part (Trio), a quiet strength.
The Last Movement begins with a recollection of the beginning of two other Movements-the Romance and the First Movement (we remember, from the latter, that drop of almost an octave). Here is Brahms in lusty strength — the craftsman enjoying himself in making music to be equally enjoyed by alert listeners, willing to open their minds to fine thoughts and to be stimulated by masterful argument.
THIS Quartet is in four Movements : (1) Slow, then Quick; (2) Slow, in a singing style;
(3) Minuet; (4) Very quick.

Order of Service : This sanctuary of my Soul
Unwitting I keep white and whole, Unlatched and lit, if Thou should'st care
To enter or to tarry there.
With parted lips and outstretched hands, And list'ning ears Thy servant stands, Call Thou early, call Thou late,
To Thy great Service dedicate
My Soul, keep white and whole.

Appeal on behalf of the National Institute for the Deaf, by Dame MADGE KENDAL , D.B.E.
To be afflicted with deafness is a terrible thing, as terrible in some ways as being blind, although the sympathy so readily extended to the one class of sufferers is often withheld from the other. The National Institute for the Deaf has been in existence only three years, but it is doing splendid work in attacking what has been well described as ' the most inhuman of all afflictions.' It seeks to promote the prevention of deafness, the education and social and industrial improvement of deaf and dumb, and the care of those unhappy children who are both deaf and blind.
