The ' Froissart ' Overture was the work with which Elgar made his first appearance at one of the great English Festivals-at Worcester in 1890. It thus did a good deal to spread his fame, and was probably the first of his larger works to arouse anything at all like the interest which was then his due.
At the head of the score there is a quotation from Keats : ' '.... when Chivalry lifted up her lance on high ' ; and Ernest Newman tells us that the Overture took shape in its composer's mind from that passage in Sir Walter Scott 's' Old Mortality', ', where Claverhouse speaks to Morton of his enthusiasm for the Froissart ' Chronicles '. The music is, indeed, eloquent of Elgar's idealised view of the old-world chivalry that Froissart presents to us with so much romance.

An appeal on behalf of THE HOLIDAY HOMES OF THE
CENTRAL ASSOCIATION FOR MENTAL
WELFARE by the Rt. Hon. Lord Justice SCOTT,
The C.A.M.W. Homes scheme was started, on an experimental basis, in 1932, and it has met so great a need that in the current year no fewer than 3,800 weeks will be filled at the five Homes by patients and supervisory staffs from institutions and mental hospitals all over England and Wales, each party as a rule, staying for a fortnight. Two new Homes were opened this year, at Bognor Regis and at Weston-super-Mare. It is hoped, if funds permit, to open another one in 1940. Each Home costs approximately
£500 to adapt and furnish, and every penny of this has to be raised voluntarily.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
