The present Blackfriars was opened in 1921, seven hundred years after the first coming of the Dominicans, or Blackfriars, to Oxford. The University was young-then and some of the great names of the early days were those of schoolmen from the new orders of friars: the Dominican, Kilwardy, and the Franciscans. Roger Bacon, William of Occam, Duns Scotus.
Father Carpenter and Father Wykeham-George discuss the ideas of these men, and what they might say if they were among us today.

London Baroque Ensemble
(Leader. Max Saljpeter ) Director, Karl Haas
LionelSalter (harpsichord continue)
The London Baroque Ensemble was founded by Karl Haas in 1942 for the purpose of playing unfamiliar works by classical composers, and is broadcasting for the first time as a full orchestra. The Scherzando by Haydn , which is being broadcast for the first time in this country, has been edited by Karl Haas from a copy of the original manuscript in the Berlin State Library; it dates from about 1760.
The Concerto by C. P. E. Bach was written at about the same ' time for Christian Hesse , a viola da gamba player who lived in Potsdam, where C. P. E. Bach was composer at the Royal Court; one of his most important works, it is very elaborate in style.
The second Brandenburg Concerto will be performed in what Karl Haas believes to be Bach's original instrumentation: that is, with a recorder instead of the usual flute. and with the trumpet p'ayed an octave lower than is customary. The evidence to support this theory is that the flute part is marked ' flauto, which always signified a recorder in the eighteenth century, and the trumpet part is marked tromba,' meaning trumpet in the lower register, and not ' clarino, ’the word used for the high trumpet.

Appeal on behalf of the National Art-Collections Fund, by the Earl of Crawford and Batearres, G.B.E., chairman of the Executive Committee
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
The National Art-Collections Fund is a body of private subscribers whose object is to help our museums and galleries to acquire works of art which they could not otherwise afford; and it is largely due to the Fund that many works of the greatest beauty and value have been secured for the nation.
Velasquez' Venus, Holbein's Duchess of Milan, the Wilton Diptych , and the Luttrell Psatter are a few of the many master-pieces with which the Fund has been associated in the past.
Museums and galleries, with their small grants, rely increasingly on the Fund's help, and this help is only possible through donations and the subscriptions of its members, at present numbering some 7,000.

A Ramon's store in Spanish Town, Jamaica, John Kemp is reading a letter from his sister Veronica, giving him news of England, when Don Balthasar Riego arrives with his young and beautiful daughter Dona Seraphina , shortly followed by Don Carlos. John is presented to them and later meets O'Brien, the Irish judge, who invites him to take command of the pirates using the town of Rio Medio as their stronghold. Kemp refuses, but after leaving the store he is shanghaied aboard the ship carrying the Diegos and O'Brien home to Cuba. Seraphina seizes an opportunity to release him, and with her help he escapes into a small rowing-boat which is being towed astern. While he is rowing hard towards an English ship coming up on the quarter, O'Brien orders a boat to be lowered, in pursuit.
