What do they know of snails who only their gardens know ? Very little. And even if one has eaten fine escargots in France or Soho one hasn't learned much about the beasts. (Incidentally, the generic name of the snail family, ' gastropods ', is not directly connected with gastronomy; it only means ' stomach-footed '.) Mr. Rudall will not talk about the snails he has eaten, however, but about the snails he has studied-particularly the snails of New Zealand, which have some peculiarities of their own.

at the Organ of the Granada,
The name ' Soho ' . first appears in 1632 in the rate-books of St. Martin-in-the-Fields as 'So Ho'; it is derived from a hunting cry and must date back to the time when the land west of Holborn and Drury Lane was open country. The ill-fated Duke of Monmouth had a house in Soho Square-then called King's Square—and ‘ Soho ' was the watch-word of his men at Sedgemoor.
It was at that very time, too, that Soho began to be the haunt of foreigners, for the French invasion of Soho began after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. Greek Street, incidentally, takes its name from a colony of Greeks who built a church on the site of St. Mary the Virgin, Charing Cross Road.

' Thomas Day'
Thomas Day has one claim to real fame: he was the author of ' Sand-ford and Merton ', a book for children that remained a best-seller for a century after it was published. That, of course, does not brand him as an eccentric. His eccentricity was mainly concentrated in his belief in the existence of a Perfect Woman.
His search for her-and naturally he proposed to marry her when he had found her-reduced his life into a serial story of disappointments. He even tried to train a paragon, selecting a couple of orphans as his raw material. But, incredible as it may seem, he did succeed in his quest eventually.

The Poznan Cathedral Choir
Conducted by The Abbe Waklaw Gieburowski
The Poznan Cathedral Choir is one of the best of its kind not only in Poland but also in Europe. Its formation can be traced back to the Middle Ages, a period when choral singing had developed remarkably. Towards the end of the seventeenth century, however, when the decline of church singing set in, Poznan lost a great deal of its importance. It was only at the beginning of the nineteenth century that the Cathedral made itself felt again. Under Surzynski Poznan became the centre of the revival of sacred music in Poland. In 1915 the choir was taken over by Waklaw Gieburowski.
There are nearly sixty singers, combined in the same way as they were in choirs of the Middle Ages. That is to say, there are four voices consisting of sopranos, altos, tenors, and basses, the soprano and alto parts being taken by boys.
