Peter Warlock 's song cycle ' The Curlew' was begun in 1920 and finished some two years later. The four poems are all by W. B. Yeats , three from the volume ‘ The Wind Among the Reeds' and the fourth from ' In Seven Woods '. Except for the close of the third song, the mood of the whole cycle is one of dark despair. According to the composer: '"The Curlew" should not be regarded as a set of songs, but rather as a piece of chamber music in one continuous movement, whose mood is defined by four poems by W. B. Yeasts. ' It is dedicated to Cecil Gray , the critic and composer.

5.0 Toytown Goes West
by S. G. Hulme-Beaman
In which the intrepid adventurers reach home once more (From Regional)
Here is the final story in the little series that tells about the cruise and wreck of the Toytown Belle. Our intrepid adventurers get back to Toytown to find the walls and hoardings smothered with advertisements inducing the population to move to the neighbouring and rival town of Arkville. It seemed they required no persuasion-they have gone to a man, except for Mr. Noah. Listeners will hear about Larry's extraordinarily clever plan to get the population to come back.

In May, 1721, Bach, in obedience to a command of two years before, sent the Margrave of Brandenburg a parcel of new compositions, with a courtly letter in French, and an autograph inscription, also in French: ' Six Concertos with various Instruments, Dedicated To His
Royal Highness Christian Ludwig , Margrave of Brandenburg, etc., etc., by His very humble and very obedi.ent servant John Sebastian Bach. Master of the Chapel of H.S.H. the reigning prince of Anhalt-Cothen.'
The second of the famous, six. which is being played tonight, stands in the first rank of Bach's instrumental compositions.
Symphony No. 5, in C minor
1 Allegro con brio. 2 Andante con moto. 3 Scherzo-Allegro. 4 Finale : Allegro
The modern style of symphonic development, which is shown in its highest form in Sibelius's Fourth Symphony, is the direct outcome of Beethoven's symphonic style. The Symphony No. 5, in C minor, is an excellent example, particularly the first movement, which is based on the tersest of thematic material (the whole movement is almost entirely built upon the opening rhythmic figure often described as being symbolical of the summons of Fate) and developed with extraordinary imagination.
