Charles Avison (1710-70) was born at Newcastle-on-Tyne, and studied music in Italy. On his return to England he became a pupil of Geminiani. In addition to being the organist at St. Nicholas, Newcastle, Avison made a considerable reputation as a scholar and litterateur. His compositions included fifty concertos for string orchestra, a number of string quartets and trios, and three volumes of sonatas for two violins and harpsichord.

It is not sufficient for the gardener to think of today and leave tomorrow to take care of itself; if he did, there would be no flowers in his garden. The wallflowers of spring, the sweet Williams of summer, were all grown from seeds sown a year ago. And if there is to be colour in your garden from the delightful and irreplaceable flowers next spring and summer, you must get on with the sowing now.
R. Hay , whom C. H. Middleton is to bring to the microphone to give this talk on biennials, is the son of T... Hay, Superintendent of the Royal Parks. The son is connected with a famous firm of seed-growers and gave a talk on annuals in February last.

This is a setting for contralto solo, chorus and orchestra, of a poem by Arthur O'Shaughnessy. It sets forth how the makers of music and the dreamers of dreams are a real force in the world, conquering crowns and even trampling kingdoms down. A striking feature of the music is that the composer has introduced Into it at various points quotations from some of his own earlier works. Traces of his two symphonies, of the ' Enigma' Variations, The Dream of Gerontius, and many others can be heard by the attentive listener who knows them.
