A short story by Desmond MacCarthy -
, read by Ronald Watkins
Here is a story, written with Desmond MacCarthy 's sure touch, of a collection of pleasant and unpleasant little boys and of one boy in particular with a conscience-which is destined to be made elastic by the world around him before he grows to be a man.
The setting, a preparatory school ; time, mid-winter term ; the opening scene, the library in which the whole school is boxed up after a three days' storm. No safety valve
-something bound to happen. Then shortly before lunch one morning the school is summoned by the Head to the Big Playroom. Someone has defaced one of the shutters in the library with a drawing or inscription no longer decipherable. Will the culprit own up ?

Quartet in B minor (unfinished)
1 Dans un emportement douloureux (tres anime). 2 Lent et Passionne
Guillaume Lekeu (1870-1894), on* of Franck's most brilliant pupils, was a Belgian like his master. His untimely death cut short his work on this quartet, beside which the well-known Violin Sonata was (in his own words) to be ' but a penny toy '.
' The subject of the first movement ', he wrote, ' is bitter, convulsive sorrow, softened now and again into passionate melancholy. But, as the second movement is to indicate Love as the source of this sorrow, I am forced, while working at the first movement, to keep the second clearly before me, and to weave my themes and patterns so that they may be completely unified with those to follow later.'
In 1893 he wrote to Ysaye: 'I can tell you that my interminable quartet is growing ; in a week the first movement will be finished. I have done my best to set down in it my dream of the keenest, the most sacred grief and passion..... The second movement is to be at once a nocturne and a love-scene.' But he never finished that love-scene; it was left for Vincent d'Indy to complete his comrade's swan song.
