Few figures of stage or screen can point to a career more romantic, and in itself theatrical, than Jessie Matthews. Shortly after the war she was selling apples from her father's barrow in Soho. Today she is a film and stage star of international repute. The story of this career will be unfolded tonight as Jessie, and many of those with whom she has been associated in her rise to fame, come to the microphone. Among these will be Arthur Rigby , at one time a famous pantomime 'dame', who gave Jessie her first chance at the Kilburn Empire when she was a child. Soon after she was dancing in a Charlot chorus, and within a very short time was signed up with Cochran. Just now Jessie Matthews is rehearsing her new show, I Can Take It, which opens at Sheffield on January 23.

The Missa Cellensis or Mariazeller-Messe, the most popular of Haydn's masses, composed in 1782, was commissioned by an Austrian official, Liebe von Kreutzner, for the monastery of Mariazell in Styria. Mariazell was for many years one of the most frequented places of pilgrimage in Austria, the object of adoration being an image of the Madonna and Child presented to the monastery in 1157, and Haydn himself had visited the shrine as a youth of eighteen in 1750. He is said to have taken special care with the composition of this Mass, though he was not above borrowing for the 'Benedictus' an air from his comic opera, Il Mondo della Luna, composed in 1777.
