SCHUBERT'S PIANOFORTE SONATAS played by JAMES CHING
No. 2 Grosse (Great) Sonata in A (1st and 2nd
Movements)
THIS is the second of three Sonatas designated
' Great Sonatas.' The one in B Flat played at the beginning of the week in this series was the third.
The first movement of this is, indeed, cast in an imposing mould, but though worked out at some length, it is all so happily melodious that none would wish it shorter. It begins with a subject in which the keynote persists at the top of the harmony for five bars, and the repetition of one note is an important feature of the whole movement, forming part of the second main theme also.
The second movement begins quietly and s imply with a happy little song melody, that is sot forth very much after the manner of one of Schubert's songs, to form the first section of the movement.

Froissart's Chronicles, Chapter 146—The Surrender of Calais. Chapter 384—Wat Tyler 's
Death at Smithfield
THIS evening's reading is takon from the Chronicle of the famous mediaeval historian: of the Hundred Years War between England : and France. It is from the pages of Froissart that the most vivid, and simultaneously the most accurate, pictures can- be obtained of the period. when Chivalry was a real code regulating normal life, and not merely the background of novels; and war followed an etiquette as strict as that of the modern hunting field. The surrender of Calais to Edward III , with the rescue of the six condemned burghers from execution by the inter. vention of Queen Philippa, is one of the most dramatic scenes in English history. The descrip* tion of Wat Tyler's death at the hands of Walworth, the Lord Mayor of London, which ended the Peasants' Revolt in the reign of Richard II, is another admirable piece of historical writing; An interesting incident of the rising was the burning of Savoy Palace, then the property of the Duke of Lancaster, by the rebels.

TRAVELLING, even in these days, has a certain clement of adventure clinging to it still. One's senses are a shade sharpened; one notices things moro, and they are apt to impress ona or amuse one more. That is probably why one seems to meet such extra ordinary people on stations and in trains. For the people one meets travelling do seem rather extraordinary-though not an of us have had such strango encounters as those that Captain d'Egville will describe tonight.
