W. Y. HURLESTONE , who died in 1906, at the ago of thirty, left some fragrant chamber music. Three pieces contain work for the Bassoon, and one of these, the Sonata in F, we are to hear. Its four Movements, which contain some most graceful music, well devised to give the Bassoonist opportunities for showing his own and his instrument's artistic capacity, are: (1) Lively ; (2) Ballad; (3) Fairly quick; 4) At a moderate pace.

Recit. and Air, ' Che faro senza Euridice Y ' ('What shall I do without Eurydice? ') from ' Orpheus ' Gluck
THE background of Gluck's air is this :-
Eurvdice, the wife of Orpheus, is dead The sorrowing husband is allowed to descend into
Hades and bring her back, but he must not, in doing so, look on her face. He finds her, and bids her follow him. She, not understanding his averted look, thinks that ho no longer loves her, and weeps so that he forgets his vow, and shows his love in one glance. She falls lifeless. Che faro ? expresses the husband's sore grief. In the end, the god of Love, touched by his distress, again restores Eurydice to him.
