Anthony Scott, who is an organist and teacher as well as a composer, was born in 1911; he studied at the Royal College of Music with Herbert Howells and later with Gerald Finzi. His works include a Fantasia for string orchestra, which was broadcast some years ago, a S nfonietta for strings, several organ pieces, and a Violin Concerto, which was given recently at a concert of the Society for the Promotion of New Music. His Introduction and Fugue for orchestra was completed in 1946. Kurt Koppel was born in Berlin in 1916, but has lived in this country for the past sixteen years and is now of British nationality. He studied with William Alwyn at the Royal Academy of Music and has to his credit a considerable number of works, three of which have been broadcast: a Symphony for Strings, a Piano Concerto, and ' Summer Music.' The Five Songs for baritone and strings, written in 1947, are settings of lyrics by a Welsh poet, Leslie Norris, which express the thoughts, hopes, wishes, and fears of a young man. Their titles are: ' The Day,' ' The Individual,' 'Divided Vision,' ' The Mind,' and * The Arrow of Truth.'
