Ⓓ ‘ Reminders for February '
C. H. Middleton
Nothing could be more useful to a gardener than hints about the things he ought to do in the garden month by month throughout the year, and listeners will appreciate the fact that C. H. Middleton is going t6 broadcast a garden calendar, as it were, throughout the spring. Today he will give some reminders for February ; on March 6 some reminders for March ; and on April 3 some reminders for April. A notebook and fountain pen, or a pencil sharpened at both ends, might be good things to have handy for today's listening.
with Don Carlos
This orchestra, almost the only one of its kind in England, was formed about six years ago. It consists of about sixteen players, most of them armed with mandolines of various sizes, graded just like a string orchestra- violins, cellos, etc. Each of the players can on occasion use a banjo, .and these banjos, too, vary in size and in pitch. As a background there are accordions and guitars. Obviously, everything this orchestra plays has to be specially scored.
Leader, Alfred Barker
Conducted by H. Foster Clark
Purcell's most ambitious dramatic work was the music to Dryden's King Arthur. In the preface to the text Dryden said : ' There is nothing better, than what I intended, than the Musick ; which has since arriv'd to a greater perfection in England, than ever formerly; especially passing through the artful hands of Mr. Purcell, who has compos'd it with so great a genius, that he has nothing to fear but an ignorant, ill-judging audience ... these sorts of Entertainments are principally design'd for the ear and the eye ; and therefore, in reason, my art on this occasion ought to be subservient to his.'
1 — ' Towards a World Christian
His Grace the Lord Archbishop of York
The World Missionary Conference held at Edinburgh in 1910 was the beginning of what is called the ' (Ecumenical Movement' among the Protestant Churches, the aim of which is the furtherance of understanding and co-operation between the denominations. The movement towards unity was delayed by the war, but the Conference of British Missionary Societies and similar bodies came into existence in Great Britain, North America, and on the continent of Europe, and these in turn were linked together through the International Missionary Council.
Then followed the ' Copec ' Conference in Birmingham in 1924, the ' Life and Work' Conference at Stockholm in 1925, and the ' Faith and Order ' Conference at Lausanne in 1927. In 1928 the Council convened a meeting at Jerusalem, and in the summer of last year there were further great gatherings-that on ' Church, Community, and State ', held at Oxford, and another ' Faith and Order' Conference, at Edinburgh.
A further World Missionary Conference was to have been held at the end of the year at Hangchow, in China, but the tragic developments in the Far East made this impossible. The site therefore has been changed to Madras, and the Conference will be held in the new buildings of the Madras Christian College at Tambaram, fifteen miles from the city of Madras, from December 10 to December 30.
Today the Archbishop of York,
Vice-Chairman of the International Missionary Council, will say something about the problem to be faced in East and West China, and about the common need of action by the whole Church. Broadcast talks by different speakers will be given on every Sunday in February.
