Some unfamiliar records found in the BBC Gramophone Library by Robin Duff
by Constance Carrodus
Constance Carrodus is one of the most accomplished singers of folk tongs in the country. She brings to her singing of these not only a beautiful voice but a capacity for entering into the character of the song in question.
She sings folk songs of all countries in their original languages, and in a programme a few months ago gave her impression of five different types of singers. Since then she has frequently broadcast these musical portraits. She is often asked who her partner is, and her correspondents find it hard to believe that she has none.
Constance Carrodus was born in Lancashire, and gave her first broadcast from Manchester some years ago.
She studied at the Manchester
College of Music, and subsequently became interested in character work and travelled extensively, studying the peoples of different countries and their songs.
This evening's broadcast will be a request programme.

May Blyth (soprano) from the Pavilion, Bournemouth (Soloist, HAROLD FAIRHURST> )Anthony Collins's Suite is based on three well-known songs by the late Percy French, a popular song writer and entertainer who lived in Dublin. The composer has treated the tunes of these songs very freely. ' Hannigan's Aunt' has been turned into a battle march, while the well-known and popular ' Phil the Fluter's Ball' has become a lively reel.

When it was first published in the early days of the war ' The Thirty-Nine Steps ' caused something of a sensation. In it John Buchan revealed not only his great powers of dramatic story-telling, but his sense of the drama behind some phases of international affairs.
Richard Hannay , hero of the story, fights all the time a lone battle against the forces of corruption that he has sworn to overthrow. The thirty-nine steps are a mystery to him, and one that he does not solve until the end of the story.
