Popular melodies on parade
Nelson Elms must be the tallest broadcasting organist in the country, for he measures six feet seven inches. His signature tune is ' Trees '—the inference being that elms are more popular than other trees.
He first broadcast at the Leeds
Ritz in 1935, and has since broadcast from cinemas all over the country. He has played dance music on a large four-manual concert organ at Wallasey Town Hall for a charity ball, and at Leeds Town Hall accompanied community singing for a boxing tournament. But perhaps his strangest experience was at the Clapham Junction Granada, where a circus was appearing on the stage during the week that he was playing there. Throughout his broadcast one of the tigers persisted in pacing up and down in its cage, stopping only to growl at him.

Quartet in F, Op. 77, No. 2 played by the Spencer Dyke Quartet -Spencer Dyke (violin), Edwin Virgo (violin), Winifred Copperwheat
(viola), Cedric Sharpe (cello)
The two Quartets Op. 77 are the last of Haydn's large output in this form, with the exception of an unfinished quartet in B flat. Composed in 1799 and dedicated to Prince Lobkowitz, the distinguished amateur musician and patron of Beethoven, they represent Haydn's crowning achievement in chamber music. In spite of the fact that they are so perfectly written for four stringed instruments, these quartets were originally composed as sonatas for piano and violin, or flute.
