‘ Cyprus ’
J. R. Hilton
Cyprus, where you can get excellent wine for twopence a bottle, where--it is ' scarcely possible to dig your back garden without turning up the fragments from five or six thousand years "f successively breaking pots ', where the camels smoke cigarettes, and the principal river flows for only three days in the year-that is the particular corner of the earth listeners are to hear about this morning.
It has a marvellous story, too, which the stone-age men, the bronze-age men, the Assyrians, Egyptians, 1'ersians'and Phoenicians, the Greeks and Romans, the Arabs, the English (in Coeur-de-Lion's time), the Genoese, the Venetians, the Turks, and now the English again (thanks to Disraeli) have all played picturesque parts.

He that hath a pleasant face The hunt'is up
Over Hill over
Dale Softly fall the shades of evening Spring, the sweet spring
The summer gale, that gently blows The Urchins' Dance
The Village Blacksmith What is got by sighing?
See the rooks are homeward flying Song to Pan
Around the Maypole tripping
In the minds of most listeners, even of most older listeners, the name of John Liptrott Hatton (1809-1886) is probably connected with nothing but his famous setting of Herrick's ' To Anthea '. Yet Hatton, an almost entirely self-taught musician, was no mean composer-and a good" enough singer to appear in Dublin with Clara Novello , Sims Reeves , and other first-rate artists in a selection from Don Giovanni.
He -went to Vienna in 1844 to produce his first full-scale opera Pascal Bruno. As musical director of the Princess's Theatre, London, he wrote incidental music to a number of Shakespearean and other plays. His other compositions include operas, anthems, part songs, and numerous solo songs.

Four Serious Songs, Op. 121 Brahms
1 One thing befalleth the beasts and the sons of men (Denn es gehet dem Menschen wie dem Vieh) (Ecclesiastes, 3). 2 So I returned and did consider (Ich wandte mich und sahe an) (Ecclesiastes, 4). 3 0 Death, how bitter art thou (0 Tod, wie bitter bist du) (Ecclesiasticus, 41). 4 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of the angels (Wenn ich mit Menschen und mit Engelszungen redete) (I Corinthians, 13)
Brahms's ' Four Serious Songs , Op. 121, was his last published work. Written in 1896, it is supposed to have been inspired by the foreboding of Clara Schumann s approaching death. These four songs are full of a deep emotional feeling, so much so that Brahms himself refused to hear them performed at a public concert, as he knew the music would move him too deeply.
' The Education Act'
Gerry Moore has been playing professionally since 1926, in which year he first broadcast from 2LO. He has played at most of the well-known London clubs, including the old 43, the Cafe de Paris, and Chez Rex Evans, and is at present at Merries...He favours hot music and the intimate type of playing ; hence his love of clubs where he can feature this type of music.
He formed the original Victor Sil vester Orchestra and regularly plays with this combination. He also formed Josephine Bradley 's Orchestra for her. He is now getting a band together to back up his own piano playing.
