From Birmingham
THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM POLICE BAND
Conducted by RICHARD WASSELL
To the sadness in certain parts of the Symphony may be added this note of pathos-that its composer did not live to know how extremely popular his work was to become ; for within three months of completing it, death came to him. In the last Movement (Slow and lamenting, then somewhat quicker), the moods pass through pathos and pity to final despair.

From Birmingham
. A happening of long ago, by J. E. HAROLD TERRY
With songs by ARTHUR SCOTT CRAVEN , and music by HOWARD CARR
Presented by STUART VINDEN
The scene is the parlour of ' The Pigeon Pie ' over 150 years ago. A cosy room, oak panelled, with heavy beams running athwart the ceiling, it has a large, open fireplace and ingle-nook.
Upon a rack behind the bar are bottles, quaintly shaped, and shining pewter mugs. The room is in complete darkness save for the light cast by the fire, and for the moonbeams which come intermittently through the small latticed window.
The Maid enters, bearing a lighted taper and singing snatches of an old love song. Lighting the candles above the mantel, she busies herself with bottles and mugs. The latch of the door is lifted and with a glad cry she runs to meet the incomer.
Incidental Music played by the MIDLAND
SEXTET (Leader, FRANK CANTELL ), directed by YONOSUKE MUTSU
