The Revue Chorus
The BBC Welsh Orchestra
Conducted by Mansel Thomas
Many listeners will remember the successful 'Revue of Spring ' broadcast from Cardiff this year. Here is another programme in like vein, a revue that will reflect summer in all its moods and fancies, from the farm to the shore, from Lovers Lane to local pub, from village hall to National Eisteddfod.
Lyn Joshua has been sinking, writing, and acting in Welsh programmes for many years, and has taken more parts in Children's Hour serials than it is possible to tabulate.
Mai Jones has also been identified with light musical shows from Wales since the early days.
The revue, we understand, will see a certain amount of gentle fun poked at Welsh characteristics, such fun as could have been written only by a man who knows Wales well.
Leader, Carl Taylor
Conductor, Edric Cundell Helen Perkin (pianoforte)
Edric Cundell , who has been Principal of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama since April, 1938, began his career as an orchestral horn player, in which capacity he played at Covent Garden under Nikisch in 1912. He now devotes most of his time to teaching and composing, and among his compositions are the String Quartet that won the first prize in the Daily Telegraph Chamber Music Competition, three symphonic poems, and a symphony.
Among his many important works that have been broadcast are his Quartet No. 1 in G minor and his symphonic poem 'Serbia' dated ' Macedonia, 1917 ' and written while the composer was attached to the Serbian forces during the war.
