Muriel Brunskill , who possesses one of the truly great voices of the day, was born in Kendal, Westmorland. She studied singing with Madame Blanche Marchesi , and later went to Germany to make a special study of lieder.
She made her debut in London at the Æolian Hall, and two years later joined the British National Opera Company, with which she remained for five years. During this period she sang all the leading contralto roles. She made her first appearance in the Grand Opera Season at Covent
Garden as Amneris in Aida, in which rôle she created a sensation by her magnificent singing. Her triumphs in this country have been followed up by outstanding successes' in the United States, Australia, and Holland.

Serenade in D, Op. 11 played by The BBC Orchestra (Section C), led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by Clarence Raybould
Brahms's Serenade in D belongs essentially to the Haydn tradition: it is in fact a study in the classical style, even to the scoring, which includes, however, four horns instead of the customary two of the period.
The music is genial and high-spirited throughout, but of all the seven movements the most individual is the scherzo with its pleasing syncopations and effective use of the pause. The two minuets are both very charming, particularly the second, which has a delightfully melodious and flowing trio.
