' The Christian Churches '
Ireland was an important factor of the growth of Christianity in England. Aidan and Columba spread the faith in the North, and most of the northern and western Britons were eventually converted through Celtic influences.
Meanwhile, Rome was busy. St.
Augustine was sent to England to lead a mission, and this task he fulfilled with remarkable success. ]ndeed, it is not too much to say that this saint who later was to become the first archbishop of Canterbury, was virtually the founder of the Christian Church in Southern England.
The position developed into one in which there were two forms of Chris.tianity in Britain : the Celtic and the Roman. This afternoon Rhoda Power will tell listeners of these early missions, and explain how St. Wilfred of Ripon succeeded in reconciling the two factions and eventually persuading them to acknowledge the Pope as head of the Christian Church.

Corelli's 'Great Concertos' (Concerti grossi) are similar in their general planning and instrumental grouping to those of Handel, which have often been represented in radio programmes and described in these columns. The stringed orchestra for which they are designed consists of a small group that often works independently in a manner akin to that of solo playing and a larger group that acts in support.
Handel's first set of oboe concertos (' Concertos for Hoboys and Violins ') was published by Walsh in 1734, as Opus 3. In 1741, the year of the Messiah, Walsh published a new collection of instrumental pieces under the title ' Select Harmony '. Part IV of 'Select Harmony ' consisted of concertos by Handel, Tartini, and Veracini, and it is the second of Handel's three contributions that Mr. Goossens is playing this afternoon. It consists of four movements : a slow movement full of golden, typically Handelian melody; a fine symphonic allegro, a delicious little siciliano, and a quick dance-like finale. The whole work is one of Hande]'s most characteristic and most delightful instrumental compositions.
Despite the fact that Brahms's four symphonies differ from each other both in emotional impulse and in various details of design, they are aesthetically of equal importance and belong to a symphonic style that may be described as romantic thought cast in a classical mould. The Symphony No. 4 in E minor is as lyrical and romantic in expression as most contemporary music of the time. But whereas so many of Brahms's contemporaries relied a great deal on a resplendent use of orchestral colouring to impress their ideas upon the listener, Brahms with a certain austerity allows the effect of his music to depend on its actual content and not upon its dressing.
Many admirers of Brahms consider the E minor Symphony the greatest of the four, but this is largely a matter of personal taste. Certainly its last movement is one of the greatest achievements in symphonic music-it is in passacaglia form : a set of variations on an eight-bar phrase.

The subject of tonight's talk is the Cider Industry. In recent years great efforts have been made to improve the quality of our home ciders, and so much success has been achieved that the demand for the better varieties of cider apples now greatly exceeds the supply. The speaker whom Professor Scott Watson is to bring to the microphone this evening is a member of the staff of the Long Ashton Research Station, near Bristol, which has been very actively engaged in Cider Research for many years. Dr. Charley himself is a leading expert on the subject.
He will explain the requirements of the cider maker, and discuss the industry from the farmer's point of view. He will touch on such points as the possibility of growing cider apples outside the traditional areas, and the possibility of producing earlier bearing trees.
