Dr. Peppercorn Goes to Sea by David Scott Daniell
Produced by Peggy Bacon

Doctor Peppercorn sails for Virginia aboard the*,Gofcj<?n Turtle to seek treasure and to see the wonders of the newly discovered Americas. Captain Snipe is there as well, so there will be villainy; and, as always when Doctor Peppercorn is involved, anything can happen.

The last of a series of six recitals of French organ music
Alexandre Guilmant, who lived from 1827 to 191 1, was organ professor at the Schola Cantorum, Paris, and also at the Conservatoire there. Both Marcel Dupre and Henri Mulet were pupils of his at the Conservatoire. Marcel Dupre's Three Preludes and Fugues, Op. 7, were written in 1920; No. 3 is dedicated to the memory of Joseph Boulnois, organist of Saint-Louis d'Antin.
Mulet, who was born in 1878, wrote his Esquisses Byzantines in memory of the Basilica of the Sacre-Coeur, Montmartre, which was destroyed in the First World War. The Toccata is the last piece in the volume: it is headed by the words of Christ : Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church.' Deryck Cooke
