Listeners are to hear about a holiday Alice Garnett spent in a village in the south of Poland. It was an old-world place with a wooden church and no inn or cafe of any kind ; the inhabitants poor, the roads had for there is no money to re-make them. But what with long walks, mountain climbs, quietness, and cheapness of living, such villages are in demand for holidays by townsmen from all parts of Europe.

The history of Verdi's Requiem goes back to the death of Rossini in 1868. Verdi suggested that thirteen eminent Italian composers should collaborate in a Requiem, one number to be written by each. A grand project, but it led to nothing ; when all the sections were assembled it was found that they would have made a most unwieldy work. The idea was abandoned, but five years later the death of the poet Manzoni again inspired Verdi with the idea of a Requiem, and he used in it the ' Libera me ' that had been his own contribution to the earlier scheme.

No music-hall artist has ever quite rivalled the place of Yvette Guilbert , who first sang at the Empire, Leicester Square, when she was twenty, and who even now at the age of seventy-two is giving a series of recitals in London.
At one time Madame Guilbert was an annual visitor to London, appearing at the Haymarket Theatre in 1905, at the Duke of York's in 1906, at the Coliseum in 1910, 1911, 1913, and 1915, and at the Arts Theatre, where she gave recitals, in 1928, and 1929. Tonight she is going to give her memories of the interesting people she has known in many walks of life.
