In 1906 William Yeates Hurlstone died at the age of thirty. He had already proved himself a highly-gifted composer and one of the most promising of the younger British school. His first work was a set of Five Valses for piano which were published when he was only nine years of age. At eighteen he won a scholarship at the Royal College of Music, and he studied composition under Stanford for several years.
Hurlstone's fairy suite ' The Magic
Mirror' is based on the story of ' Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs '. It was written when the composer was twenty-six years of age and performed by Sir Henry Wood at the Proms and later at the Crystal Palace.

MARY JARRED, CHORUS, AND
Brahms's Rhapsody is based on three stanzas from Goethe's 'Harzreise a poem inspired by a journey in the mountains which Goeth undertook in the winter of 1777. The poem describes the loneliness of a man who has cut himself away from his fellow beings, but its sad and melancholv spirit turns to an optimistic note, which takes the form of a prayer to the Father of Love to let the lonely one catch an echo of the heavenly music.
Brahms's music is intensely emotional and dramatic, rising to a fine climax towards the end.
