Gordon Banner began to play the organ at the age of fourteen, receiving tuition from his uncle, the late Alfred Banner , who was organist and choirmaster of the parish church of Tipton, Staffs.
It was Reginald Dixon who introduced him to the cinema organ in 1929, and in 1930 he went to America and made the acquaintance of Jesse Crawford. He appeared as guest organist at various cinemas in the U.S.A. In this country he has held appointments at the Oxford Ritz, the Hammersmith Commodore, and the Manchester Odeon.

From Huddersfield Town Hall
There are several reasons for the traditional popularity of Messiah in the North: first, the choruses offer a unique blend of opportunities for great team-work and, in the many magnificent runs and crescendos, for 'showing of '. Secondly, from the religious point of view the plain-spoken chapel-going North welcomes, perhaps subconsciously, the Protestant theology of the oratorio, the familiar words of which are all taken direct from the Bible.
Thirdly, the North likes it because it knows it so well and so thoroughly just in the same way that many thousands of people like Gilbert and Sullivan. It is said that familiarity breeds contempt, but it is impossible for anyone to have contempt for such a masterpiece as Messiah.
Part 2 of Messiah will be broadcast next Sunday at 4.15 by the Halle Society conducted by Dr. Malcolm Sargent.

Francis Poulenc , who is now forty-one, is one of the most distinguished of modern French composers. In those chaotic days immediately following the end of the last war Poulenc made a name for himself as a ' futurist ' composer. He was a member of that famous band of young French modernists known as ' Les Six '.
