IN the reign of Charles II
London was visited by two of the greatest scourges that have ever fallen on the city-the Great Plague and the Great Fire. This afternoon Miss Rhoda Power will describe those terrible years, when men died like flies in the streets of London, and then came the conflagration that destroyed the old London of our forefathers and paved the way for the ' new ' London that is just vanishing in its turn.

BACH'S SONATAS FOR VIOLA DA GAMBA
AND CEMBALO played by HOWARD BLISS (Violoncello) and GORDON BRYAN
Sonata No. I in G : First two Movements
THE three Sonatas we are to hear this week were written for the Viola da Gamba, or Bass Viol (literally 'Leg Viol,' because it was played resting between the legs), an instrument like the 'Cello, which was much favoured for solo playing and for accompaniments to songs.
Imagine the familiar 'Cello, with a longer neck, sloping shoulders, and six strings, and you have an idea of the Viola da Gamba.
The First Sonata Bach wrote for it (in G) was really an arrangement of a Sonata for two Flutes and Harpsichord. Its four Movements contain some of Bach's most charming music-spacious, thoughtful, and cheerful. Tonight we have the first two Movements, the first an eloquent Slow Movement, and the second a busy piece of a happily determined cast.
