Delius's first opera, Irmelin, was composed in 1890-2. The libretto, by Delius himself, is based on a fairy tale. The opera remained throughout his life in manuscript and, as far as can be ascertained, never received a performance, though the Prelude is often heard.
Delius's third opera. Koanga, written between 1 895 and 1897, is based on ' The Grandissimes', a novel of Creole life by George W. Cable. It was not performed in England until 1935, when Covent Garden produced it during an autumn season of opera. Delius spent some years in Florida as a tea planter and it was during a second visit there that he composed most of the music to Koanga.

Reginald King has that flair for a very rare thing-the composing of melodious music and the putting over to the best advantage of the melodious music composed by others. He has been broadcasting for ten years, and is among the few whose compositions are regularly broadcast by other light-music combinations.
Last Christmas he replaced the Celebrity Trio with the Reginald King Quartet. The addition of a viola gives breadth and colour to the ensemble.
