There is no doubt that when Gustav Holst died in 1934 Britain lost one of her greatest composers and one of the most outstanding figures in the academic world, for he was almost as great a teacher as he was a creative artist. Arthur Bliss has said that ' there is in the best of Holst's music so lofty an aim expressed with such skill and experience that he can assuredly rest happy in the knowledge that his will remain a name of honour in English music for many years to come.'
" Holst's technical skill runs away with him sometimes, his music is generally remarkable for magnificent effects produced by Ac '"mptest means. Most of his short choral pieces and folk-song arrangements, of which a representative Section will be heard this evening, are little masterpieces of their kind.

An Anthology of all the fantastic creatures in the tales of medieval travellers -ÂÂ Unicorns, the Scythian Tarand, Elephants, Dragons, Mermaids, and Demons, none was more incredible than the Elephant, and yet only the elephant has survived.
"The Elephant", an anthology by Francis Watson, was broadcast last December. Many curious and beautiful fantasies about the elephant are woven into the story, some of them translated into English for the first time.
Francis Watson, who is the author of "Trinc" and other more serious works, has recently won distinction for his study of Wallenstein, published under the title "Wallenstein: Soldier under Saturn".
