THE STATION ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
WHEN St. Paul was first produced at Diisseldorf some ninety years ago, England, the country of choral singing, was not slow to note its success. Manchester wanted to give some of it at a Festival, within two months of its first German performance, but that project seems to have failed. Still, only five months passed before the work was heard as a whole at Liverpool, in St. Peter's Church.
GLADYS PALMER (Contralto)
IN 1725 a series of Sunday concerts was started in Paris. They were named ' Concerts Spirituels,' and for them Haydn wrote, between 1784 and 1786, a dozen Symphonies.
