MATHILDE CUERVAS and EMILIO PUJOL
Emilio Pujol is a Catalan, born at Lérida in Spain, and studied the guitar under the famous Tarrega. He has had a distinguished career both in Spain and throughout Europe, being noted not only for his virtuosity as a guitafist, but also for his immense knowledge of guitar music and its technique, which has resulted in several important books from his pen.
Emilio Pujol 's wife, Mathilde. Cuervas, an Andalusian by birth, is an authority on the original Flamenco folk songs and dances, and thus between them they cover the entire range of Spanish guitar music.

There are few'people who have not heard these lines from one of the most famous of all Scotland's ballads, but there are few also who know the real story of the hero of the ballad or. know any reason why music and poetry should bo written about him. He lived in troublous times when the Court of Scotland (after Mary had been executed) was left in a state of turmoil and many personal factions were struggling for power and the control of the King, who was aftprwards to be James I of England. The author of this radio play, who has made a special study of the history of this time, has endeavoured to reconcile the romantic and beautiful ballad so widely known with the established facts of history.
