Civilisations. 2-' Greece'
SIR RICHARD LIVINGSTONE
Goethe said : ' Of all men, the Greeks have dreamt the dream of life best '. Few modern authorities would care to disagree with this view. Yet ancient Athens, the most important of the Grecian city-states, had only 160,000 citizens at its greatest time. And it is
this small centre that is admired today as an example of civilisation at its highest.
Sir Richard Livingstone will talk more of the spirit that created this civilisation than of the civilisation itself-the spirit which tried to apply intelligence to every aspect of life. Sir Richard is President of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, and is the author of several books dealing with Ancient Greece.

Much less often played than the popular Second Symphony in B minor, Borodin's First Symphony is in some respects an even finer work, Its first movement is one of the most remarkable in the whole history of the post-Beethovenian symphony, practically the whole of the thematic material being stated in the first few bars of the slow introduction. The other three movements-the Berliozian scherzo with its folk-songish trio, the oriental slow movement, the breezy (though rather Schumannesque) finale-if by no means as original, are equally delightful.
It is almost incredible that this
Symphony was the work of a self-taught amateur. (Though, it is true, Balakirev claimed that ' every bar of it was criticised and overhauled by me '.) It was begun in 1862, but not completed till 1867.

' English Song'
John Coates , who has had a distinguished career in opera, oratorio, and on the concert platform, is giving a series of six Keyboard Talks devoted to English song. In the past Mr. Coates identified himself with the whole range of English song, as an interpreter of which he was unsurpassed. Mr. Coates begins his talks this evening with four examples of early English song : ' Summer is icumen in ', ' Good King Wenceslas ', ' The Agincourt Song ', and ' Chevy Chase ', to all of which he will provide an interesting historical background.
Next week Mr. Coates will sing and discuss Tudor songs, including the King's Ballad, written by Henry the Eighth.

The Sf. Michael's Singers were founded in 1919 with the object of giving those who are engaged in daily work in the City of London an opportunity of taking part in, and listening to, performances of the best choral music both accompanied and a cappella; and especially to give annual performances of J. S. Bach 's Christmas Oratorio and St. John Passion. Since then the Society has developed, and its influence has extended far beyond the boundaries of the City.
The ' Singers ' are strictly limited to eighty picked voices, who rehearse weekly during the whole year . * In addition to the special
Bach performances, they hold an annual four days' Musical Festival during November of each year.
