The Monsoon Lands
'7—' Borneo, Sumatra, and Celebes '
ERNEST YOUNG and TOM HARRISSON Sumatra, Borneo, Celebes-these islands of the Dutch East Indies lie in this order from west to east in the South China Seas, and are the subject of Mr. Ernest Young 's talk this morning. He is to describe his landing at Macassar in the island of Celebes after going on from Java (described last week) and he will tell listeners about the coral islands near this part of the coast, and about the peak 10,000 feet high overlooking the low, flat shore with its villages and rice fields.
Large parts of these islands have never been explored — mountains, forests, deep swift rivers make travelling almost impossible. But Mr. Young is to bring to the microphone this morning Mr. Tom Harrisson , who achieved the feat of penetrating into the heart of Borneo.

Anthem, Sing joyfully (Byrd)
Sin" joyfully unto God our strength ; Sina loud unto the God of Jacob.
Take the song, and bring forth the timbrel, The pleasant harp and the viol.
Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, even in the time appointed, and at our feast day.
For this is a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.

Heinrich August Marschner (1795-1861) was, next to Weber and Spohr, one of the most important of the German ' romantic ' school of opera-composers. Though he had written earlier operas, The Vampire (produced at Leipzig in 1828) was his first work in the new Weberian vein. Its subject was very much in the popular taste for ' raw heads and bloody bones ', and it had an enormous success. It was produced in English at the London Lyceum in August, 1829, and ran for sixty nights.
D'Indy 's Karadec Suite is drawn from his incidental music to a play of Breton life produced at the Theatre Modcrne, Paris, in 1892. Scored for a small orchestra, it is one of d'lndy's most attractive minor works.
