Part I
The Station Orchestra, conducted by Leigh Henry

Leigh Henry (born 1889) was at first intended for the profession of architect, but took up music also, and eventually devoted himself entirely to it, particularly in its relation to the theatre. He was for some years Director of Music at Gordon Craig's School for the Art of the Theatre, in Florence, and has composed several works for the stage, besides chamber pieces, songs, and orchestral works. He is actively connected with modern musical movements and with the furthering of Welsh national art, and to-night we are to hear some fruits of the latter of these interests.
