MAY LYMBURN (contralto)
IN THE SPRING OF 1842 Schumann made a study of the quartets of Mozart and Haydn, after which he proceeded to write the three quartets, Op. 41, which were his first venture into the field of chamber music. Writing to Hartel, the publisher, Schumann said that ' during the summer months
I worked with great zeal at three quartets for violin, etc. We played them several times at David's, and they seemed to please players and listeners alike, in particular Mendelssohn (to whom they are dedicated). But you may be sure that I have spared no pains to produce something really good ; indeed, I sometimes think, my best ! The No. I in A minor is a very beautiful work, rich in melodic invention, and full of rhythmic vitality. What the music may lack in constructive perfection it makes up for in fancy and charm.

B. WALTON O'DONNELL
Carried out by the Chief Warder in conjunction with the 2nd Bn. Scots Guards
THE CEREMONY opens with the Chief Warder meeting his Escort at the Bloody Tower. The Chief Warder and Escort then proceed to the Visitors' Entrance gate on Tower Hill, the sentries en route presenting arms. The Visitors' Entrance gate is locked, and they then return through the Middle and Byward Tower, locking each in turn. On reaching the Bloody Tower, they are challenged, and then proceed to the Main Guard. The Main Guard salutes the Keys by presenting arms, and the Chief Warder, raising his hat, calls out ' God Preserve King George '. Ten o'clock sounds from the Tower clock, and the relay finishes with the sounding of the Last Post.
