An appeal on behalf of the Artists' General Benevolent Institution by Sir John Martin-Harvey , D.Litt., LL.D.
The Artists' General Benevolent Institution, which was established in 1814 and incorporated by Royal Charter in 1842, was formed for the purpose .of helping professional artists-painters, sculptors, engravers, and artists. It helps them over difficulties caused by temporary distress or unmerited neglect, as well as those due to illness, blindness, and old age. Relief is also given to their widows and orphans. The Institution is "principally dependent on voluntary subscriptions, and the war adds to the calls on it.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to Sir John Martin-Harvey, [address removed]

Leader, Laurance Turner
Conductor, Gideon Fagan Haydn's Symphony No. 103, in E flat (The Drum Roll), is the eighth of the series of symphonies that Haydn wrote for Salomon in London. It shows the classical symphony brought to its highest state of organisation. Apart from added richness of detail and subject-matter, the orchestration is characterised by more freedom of the wind instruments and the lower strings. In the E flat Symphony, for instance, instead of the customary strings and four wind instruments there are in addition strings, two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, two horns, two trumpets, and drums. The Symphony derives its title from the fact that the first move. ment opens with a drum roll.
A programme of restful melody arranged and presented by Sandy Macpherson at the theatre organ
