ELEPHANT AND CASTLE
SULLIVAN'S father was an Irish soldier who rose to be Sergeant of the Band at Sandhurst and later a professor at Kneller Hall , the Royal Military School of Musio where all Army bands-men are trained. Young Sullivan picked up his training there, too, and, as it turned out, could not have found a better school. His father died when Sullivan was twenty-four, and this overture is a handsome and moving tribute to his memory.

From THE PAVILION, BOURNEMOUTH (First Performance)
(Conducted by THE COMPOSER)
NORMAN DEMUTH is known by name to listeners of these concerts, his music having been a regular feature of them for the past few years. Listeners may remember his Symphony in D Minor, broadcast from Bournemouth last year. Born in Croydon, he was educated at St. George's, Windsor, Repton, and the Royal College of Music. However, he confesses that, in the big forms of composition for the orchestra he is completely self-taught. He is now Professor of Composition at the Royal Academy of Music. The present Nocturne was inspired from La Butte do Montmartre, and in its pages, as in actual fact, modem idiom and the romantic spirit dwell on that famous hill contentedly together.

SONGS OF HAYDN sung by JOHN ARMSTRONG and JOAN COXON
Un tetto umil (A little House) Der Gleichsinn (Sympathy)
Trost unglucklicher Liebe (Love's Consolation) Der ersto Kuss (The first Kiss)
Eine sehr gewöhnliche Gcschichte (A very familiar Story)
Liebes Miidehen , hor mir zu (Listen to me, sweet Maiden)
Das Leben ist oin Traum (Life is a Dream)
Die zu spate Ankunft der Mutter (Mother came too late)'
HAYDN was not a bookish man, and he was quite content that his publisher should select verses for him to set. His only preference was for the arch, the sentimental, and the minor forms of melancholy. Apart from this, it did not seem to occur to him that the author of the verses had an identity, for he never put the author's name on his manuscript, or troubled his head at all about him. Consequently, he got only the kind of words he deserved.
