A Playlet with Music
Words by EDITH REYNOLDS
Scene : The kitchen of a country cottage a few miles from Shrewsbury
THE book of this Wayside Episode ' is by a sister of the composer, already known to' wireless listeners as author of Shepherd's Delight and other plays which have been broadcast. It is really a miniature operetta, with spoken dialogue and songs and duets for the two characters. There is a flute part, played by a . third character whoso voice is not heard, but whose flute music has a symbolic meaning.
The playlet and its music were specially written and composed for broadcasting.
' The Ballad of Black-eyed Susan'
Words by JOHN GAY
Chorus of Sailors
MR. REYNOLDS has set this old-time ballad for two voices, with a chorus of sailors, and orchestra. The scene is ' All in the Downs,' and at the beginning there is a merry hornpipe, in which bassoon, oboe, and other instruments share, each playing a little solo. The tale of the tender parting of William and his Black-eyed Susan is unfolded partly by the voices of the two themselves, partly by the chorus of sailors, and at one point there is a quartet of four men's voices, which breaks in with half-whimsical, halt-pathetic, effect. At the end, when Susan cries ' Adieu ' and ' waves her lily hand,' the hornpipe is heard again, but now like a phantom, in which the mocking spirit of the sea laughs at lovers' vows. It is played by solo flute.

MUCH has already appeared in the newspapers about the loan exhibition of Dutch masters that will be open to the public tomorrow at Burlington House. For mere size and scale and the staggering value of the pictures brought together, the exhibition is an epoch-making event. Artistically it is also a rare opportunity of studying the whole pageant of the Dutch school. Mr. Wilenski, the art critic, who will talk about the exhibition tonight, has just published an ' Introduction to Dutch Art.' Listeners will remember that he edited the special photogravure supplement on 'The Nativity in Art,' which appeared in the Christmas Number of The Radio Times.
