Stanford was perhaps the most dominating influence in British music up to the War. Many of the leading composers of today passed through his hands, either at the Royal College of Music or at Cambridge University.
Despite Stanford's extensive teaching and conducting activities, he found time to write an enormous amount of fine music, including operas, symphonies, chamber works, and songs. Much of his work has an Irish flavour, as is only natural with a man who had more knowledge than any .musician living of the folk-music of his native country. Indeed, the ' Petrie Collection of Irish Music ', which Stanford edited, is the standard authority.

Two Fancies (by J. Jenkins , 1592-1678) and J. Ward) transcribed for String quartet by Andre Mangeot from manuscript at Christ Church Library, Oxford Benjamin Britten comes from Lowestoft, where he was born in 1913. It is said that he began to compose almost from the time that he first learnt to use a pen. At the age of nine he began studying composition under Frank Bridge, and a short time later took piano lessons from Harold Samuel. Britten then entered the Royal College of Music and became the pupil of John Ireland.
He has already established himself as one of the most gifted composers of the younger British school, and in his major compositions, such as the Sinfonietta for ten solo instruments and 'A Boy was Born' for unaccompanied voices - both of which were first heard at BBC Contemporary Music Concerts in 1934 - he writes with genuine inspiration.

An Appeal on behalf of THE Ex-SERVICES WELFARE SOCIETY, by an unknown soldier
It is a melancholy fact that there are today, on the twenty-first anniversary of the outbreak of war, no fewer than 6,000 ex-Service men in mental hospitals and over 30,000 officially recognised as suffering from neurasthenia. The Ex-Services Welfare Society exists to supplement the work of the State. It takes patients free of charge, and without calling upon the State for any kind of grant.
Ex-Service men who need temporary treatment are cared for at its Curative Homes at Beckenham. Those who have recovered, but can work only under sheltered conditions, are employed at the Society's Industrial Colony, Leatherhead. Each man earns a minimum wage of 45s. per week, after a period of training, out of which he pays 25s. per week for his maintenance in the hostel provided. The married men live in cottages built on the Estate. The Society needs the sum of £.5,000 to extend its factory, before the winter, and to find accommodation for those men who are working temporarily in marquees that have had to be purchased.

Leslie Jeffries has just returned from a short holiday in time to give another of his popular broadcasts with this celebrated orchestra. As usual, items to please all tastes are to be found in the programme.
In view of the day, the broadcast will open with Elgar's stirring ' Land of Hope and Glory ', and could it close with anything more popular than Gems from Gilbert and Sullivan operas ?
The violin solos, by Leslie Jeffries himself, will be two of the famous Hungarian dances by Brahms, a charming melody, ' Tristes amours', by Eda Farmer, and his usual surprise item.
