Kirsten Flagstad (soprano)
BBC Symphony Orchestra
(Leader, Paul Beard )
Conductor, Sir Malcolm Sargent
' Brigg Fair ' was given thirty-six times in Germany in 1907, the year of its composition; yet nowadays Delius' music is hardly ever heard on the Continent, and less and less often in this country. In view of its unique personality and fascinating beauty, it seems hard to account for this state of affairs, though perhaps the fundamental reason is Delius' cosmopolitanism, which isolated him from the main stream of the music of any particular country. Yet ' Brigg Fair,' for example, belongs so unmistakably to our own climate that it should remain a favourite with English audiences. By the fusion of a Lincolnshire folk-tune with his individual treatment: of Wagnerian chromatic harmony Delius 'created the perfect musical image of an English summer's day: the freshness of early morning, the heat of noon, the momentary clouding-over, the blaze of sunset, and the slow merging of twilght into the cool shades of evening.

Appeal on behalf of the Florence Nightingale Hospital, by Anna Neagle C.B.E. ,
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]
Florence Nightingale was appointed as Lady Superintendent of the Hospital in 1853. This year, therefore, commemorates the centenary of her appointment. Through the Hospital which bears her name, Miss Nightingale first made the world aware of her powers and inspirations. Here she proved herself and her gemus. This success was followed by the invitation to go to the Crimea.
The hospital today is maintained to provide medical and surgical treatment for women of limited means and of the professional classes who caninot afford high fees and prefer private accommodation. The Minister of Health decided not to include this specialised hospital in the National Health Scheme. Only one fifth of the total cost of running the hospital is met by payments from patients, the remainder has to be found from voluntary sources.

In this edition Dr. Daniel introduces:
Sir Mortimer Wheeler , C.I.E., M.C., D. Litt. , F.B.A.
Professor of Archaeology in the University of London, and Secretary of the British Academy
Produced by Alan Gibson
Sir Mortimer Wheeler excavated the great earthworks at Stanwick, in the North Riding of Yorkshire in the summers of 1951 and 1952, and was able to show that the Elizabethan antiquary Leland made a good guess when he described it as * campe of men of warre.'
In giving an account of his work, he relates the archaeological results of recent excavation to what is known of north Britain in the first century A.D., and to the Brigantes whom Roman historians described as being subdued only after ' many battles, sometimes bloody battles.*
