NACHTVIOLEN (Gillyflowers) is a gentle threnody to the days that were.
Cull your rue to spice your sorrow, Pansies if you fear the morrow,
But when sorrow's deepest well is dry Gillyflowers for memory.
Fruhlingsglaube (Faith in Spring). A lovely little rhapsody of delight in Spring, with its promise and proof of new life, and its call to the care-filled heart to rejoice and face the future with good cheer.
Bastlose Liebe (Restless Love). - The title has its counterpart in Schubert's music, which has an unquiet accompaniment and fails to settle down in any one key until the last page, on which the words ' Crown of life, Joy without rest, thou art Love,' are much repeated in the key of C Major.
Between 7.45 and 8.0 we hope, if conditions are favourable, to relay from the Sydney Broadcasting Station, greetings from the M.C.C. Team in Australia

IN 1820 Rossini produced an Opera, Mahomet
II, Which was not a success. He had done extremely well with his earlier works, Tancredi, The Barber of Seville (his first opera) and others, but nearly every composer has a disappointment now and again. Like a careful, economical soul, Rossini saved up Mahomet, and when he was engaged to conduct Opera in Paris, served it up again as The Siege of Corinth. Then it was a success.
