Berlioz had a very poor opinion of his fellow countryman Herold, the composer of Zampa. He accused him of having no style of his own. combining in his music something borrowed from France, Germany, and Italy to produce what Berlioz called 'merely Pasisian music'. '. And of this opera he said, ' the banging of the big drum at the end is so continuous and furious that
one is tempted to take to one's heels'. The world does not share that verdict, at least of the overture.
Pleasley is near Mansfield. The band is composed entirely of colliery cmployees, and many of its members work at the coal-face. It is an old-established band, but was reorganised in 1924 with Mr. Lambeth as conductor. Since then it has won nearly £2,000 in prizes, including first and cup in the third section at the Crystal Palace in 1927. It has filled a number of public engagements and is very popular in the Manchester parks. Two sons of the conductor are soloists, one playing the cornet and the other the euphonium.
