Max Reger was a modern disciple of Bach, and in his works much of the style of Bach is revealed. He found his most congenial medium of expression in chamber and organ music, though, actually, he composed in every form. His music is often characterised by its facile fluency, often akin to a style of improvisation, but in his higher flights he attained the level of a great master. His counterpoint, always scholarly, is sometimes ornate ; his themes sometime imitative, are, nevertheless, strong, and his workmanship always that of a consummate musician.
The Second Quartet, in A, is in three movements, the first vigorously rhythmic, the second a set of six variations on a single theme, and the third a piece of pleasant flowing character.

An appeal on behalf of THE St. ALBANS AND MID-HERTS
HOSPITAL, by the Rev. B. E. F. Mitchell , M.C., Mayor of St.
For nearly one hundred years the St. Albans and Mid-Herts Hospital has been serving a large and increasingly important district. With traffic ever growing on the main roads passing through St. Albans, the demands on the hospital have steadily and inevitably increased. Now the stage has been reached when, unless support from outside the district can be obtained, it will be impossible to maintain the hospital in a state of efficiency to deal with the road-accident cases constantly brought in for treatment.
The appeal that the Mayor of St.
Albans makes tonight is therefore one for help for a cause that might directly benefit, or even save the life, of anybody who is listening. For in these days of motoring, who can say with assurance that he will not be going through Mid-Herts in the near future, or that he will not need the services of this hospital?
