Lalo's most successful opera was not performed until he was sixty-five. As has so often happened in the history of music, recognition came to him only after long and patient striving and considerable hardship. The opera was an immediate success, and won the prize of the French Academy. Not only that, but it reached its hundredth performance almost within a year of its production.
The story is of a mythical kingdom of Ys, of love and of warfare between two neighbouring kings, and at the end the King's daughter, to save her father's realm, gives herself to the sea as a sacrifice. The patron saint of Ys rises from the waves to receive her, and the waters go back from the land that they had threatened to overwhelm.

' am travelling to Tennelhurst to die..... It would hardly do not to die..... You see, I cannot afford to live. I have spent all my savings on the fare, everything but a pound or two.....' This is what the frail Mr. Hopkins told a fellow-traveller on the voyage out. Whom the invalid met when he reached his destination, and how he died exactly as he wished, is the subject of the short story to be read this afternoon. It appeared in print in 1929 in The English Review.

Mendelssohn's chamber music contains some of his best and most fascinating works, notably the Octet in F for strings which was composed at the age of sixteen. It has been said of the Octet that it is much more of a symphony scored for a string orchestra than true chamber music. Indeed, Mendelssohn appears to have anticipated this criticism, for he desired that the Octet should be played in symphonic style. The scherzo, the third movement of the Octet, was re-scored for orchestra by the composer himself for a concert of the Royal Philharmonic Society in London, which he conducted in 1829. According to the composer himself, the motto for the scherzo was the following stanza from Goethe's Faust:
Floating cloud and trailing mist
Bright'ning o'er us hover ;
Airs stir the brake, the rushes shake-
And all their pomp is over.

' Impressions of the Oxford
J. H. Oldham , D.D.
J. H. Oldham , who has just received a Doctorate from Oxford University, is the general leader of the Conference on Church, Community, and State, which has now finished ita fortnight's work at Oxford. His position as chairman of the Research Commission of the Conference has brought him into close touch with some of the foremost thinkers in Christendom ; and the volumes of literature about to be published, which are the results of their corporate thinking, will all have passed through his hands. No one is more fully qualified than Dr. Oldham to give authoritative impressions of this world-wide gathering, which owes so much to his wise and skilful guidance.

An appeal on behalf of THE SOLDIERS', SAILORS', AND AIR-MEN'S FAMILIES ASSOCIATION, by Vice-Admiral Sir WILLIAM JAMES ,
The Soldiers', Sailors', and Airmen's Families Association was established fifty-two years ago, and has expended £4,500,000 in relieving distressed families of Service and ex-Service men. Its activities are far-reaching, for the organisation includes some twelve hundred branch committees in Great Britain and in garrison towns abroad.
Funds are much needed to enable adequate help to be given to the many cases of distress that are constantly being brought to the notice of the Association.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]
