Monica Stracey , and Dorothy Summers
To recapture the spirit of England in days gone by, and to show how this spirit has always been kept alive on the village green, is the aim of this programme. On the green, men met to barter, to test their weapons, to make trials of strength, and to keep festival with folk dance and song. First the Puritans and then the Enclosure Acts brought changes, but the village green still remains a centre in peace-time for cricket, the meet of hounds, and the travelling circus ; and in wartime for local defence activities.

Three pieces for string quartet (1914)
Goossens's Fantasy-Quartet was written in 1915 and dedicated 'to my friends the London String Quartet
Philip Heseltine (Peter Warlock ) has recorded that in 1916 the quartet ' was sent in MS. to Frederick Delius , who pronounced it the best thing he had seen from an English pen ; and it is not improbable that the new resources revealed and suggested by this work may have served to break down his apparent aversion to quartet writing, since his latest work has been cast in this form '.
