Vaughan Williams's choral suite Five Tudor Portraits was produced at the Norwich Festival in 1936 and given its first London performance at a BBC Symphony Concert in January 1937. The following de- scription of the subject of the poems is based on the composer's own note.
The first movement is a ballad telling of a certain Elinor Rumming who kept an alehouse in Leatherhead, and of her guests, notably one 'drunken Alice' who succeeds apparently in obtaining a free drink and then falls into a drunken slumber. (The composer tells us that the inn, 'The Running Horse', is still there and a portrait of Elinor hangs on the outer wall.)
The second movement is a love song ; the third is a satirical epitaph on John Jayberd, the parish clerk of Diss, in Norfolk, where Skelton was sometime rector. The words are written in monkish Latin with sudden unexpected interjections in English. The fourth movement is a lament sung by Jane Scroop, a pupil at the Abbey School of Carrow, near Norwich, for Philip, her sparrow, which had been killed by 'Gib, our cat'.
The last movement, entitled Scherzo, is based on two poems, 'Jolly Rutterkin' and a song out of the play Magnificence.

Douglas Byng , famous female impersonator and master of make-up, was a designer of theatrical costumes before wearing them on the stage. He made his first big hit as the Grand Vizier in Aladdin at the Palladium, and for two years toured in the revue Crystals.
But it was C. B. Cochran who really put him on the map. From 1-925 to 1930 he gave brilliant performances in Cochran revue after Cochran revue. Listeners will remember his recent broadcast in ' Top of the Bill
and his Band with Anne Lenner and Fred Latham
