Appeal of Bach's Music
Bach is unique in that every other great composer from Haydn to Hindemith has paid homage to the manifold qualities of his genius. At the same time he is no less a god to the plain man, which is a remarkable tribute to the varied and powerful appeal of his music as music, for it is' quite uncoloured with those personal and romantic associations which have made Beethoven's C minor Symphony a symbol of ' Fate ' and Chopin's Nocturnes a confession of ' Love '.
Sir Donald Tovey has called Bach ' a spectator of all musical time and existence '. He came at the end of a great period and summed up all that it stood for. It was because of this that his music found little favour with his younger contemporaries and immediate successors. For nearly a hundred years after his death the greater part of his works lay buried and forgotten. Their style was considered old-fashioned. It was not until 1829, when Mendelssohn revived the St. Matthew Passion, that
Bach really came into his own. Of late years the Proms have undoubtedly done more to popularise Bach in England than any other concert organisation.
Humility of Genius
Bach was a man of strong will and set purpose. He had his own ideas on how his work should be carried out, and if they ran counter to those of his patrons so much the worse for them. He could be obstinate and aggressive, and show a bad temper that brooked no defiance ; he knew his own strength as a musician, though probably he never realised the true extent of his creative genius ; but he was not without humility. Once, when asked the secret of his organ playing, he said : ' There is nothing wonderful about it. You just strike the right note and the organ does the rest'.

CARMEN DEL RIO (soprano)
The Leslie Bridgewater Quintet has been broadcasting regularly for the last five years. The instruments in it are a quartet of strings and a piano, which he plays himself. The personnel is recruited from the most famous string players, all of whom have appeared as soloists at Queen's Hall, and practically all the music played is specially arranged by Leslie Bridgewater.
Tonight that clever and charming singer, Carmen del Rio , is to broadcast with the Quintet for the first time, and on Saturday she is to broadcast with the Continentals for the twenty-fourth time. She is featured on page 8 in People you Hear '.
An Eye-Witness Account of the day's play in the Golf Tournament from
Pine Valley, New Jersey
The Walker Cup, one of the most coveted trophies of the amateur golf world, takes its name from its donor, James Walker. He originally intended that the challengers should play the match in the country of the holder, but for various reasons-mainly economic -it was decided that the teams should visit each other alternately.
The match is between teams of eight aside and is played by foursomes and singles over thirty-six holes. It takes place every two years. The first match, played in 1922, was won by the Americans. And they have won every succeeding match, though the margin has been as narrow as one point. In an article on page 6 Peter Lawless discusses the prospects of the present British team.
Joe Loss and his Band broadcast in the National programme on Monday night. The story of the band is told on page 24.
