Trio in G...Hurlstone
Hurlstone, who died in 1906 at the age of thirty, was a Composer of sensitive feeling, who left some fragrant Chamber Music.
This Trio has four Movements : the First strong and graceful, the Slow Movement in thoughtful mood, a high-spirited Scherzo and a fiery Last Movement that has as its Second Chief Tune a Scots folk-song.

Hymn to the Sun (from "The Golden Cockerel")...Rimsky-Korsakov
Overture to "The Marriage of Figaro"...Mozart
The so-called 'Hymn' was the song of the Queen of Shemakha, in which she made love to foolish old King Dodon. He had gone out to fight her, for she was coming to invade his kingdom; but instead, he was conquered by her charms.
