HENRY LANE WILSON , who... died in 1915, aged 44, left a gap in a department of English music which it has never been too easy to fill. Incidentally, he was a baritone singer of great charm, but his chief claim to our gratitude lies in his arrangement of old songs, mostly of the eighteenth century. He was an indefatigable delver into the forgotten past, and he rescued a great deal of fascinating music from an undeserved oblivion. His taste in the editing and in the arrangement of his accompaniments was impeccable, as this song-cycle witnesses. All the melodies of this modest little cantata are founded on old dance forms, and between the numbers there is a vague connection such as is conveyed in the title, but the connection is not so marked as to usurp any of the charm of the music considered ns a group of engaging little songs.

Commander ERNST HASHAGEN : ‘U Boat)'
LAST week Admiral Gordon Campbell told in this series the story of the Mystery
(Q) Ships' fight against the U-Boat menace. This week Commander Hashagen, a U-Boat commander, recounts his version of the War at sea. In August, 1917, he was despatched on a special mission to the Atlantic. Short- age of fuel forced him to return by the Straits of Dover, guarded by an elaborate barrage composed of nets, mines, and sunken vessels. British submarine-chasers, aeroplanes, and destroyers were on his track. His log records his decision, ' to break through on a dark night, the net must be dived under in the deepest channel.' This story of his dash for safety is one of the most thrilling in this exciting series.

(Love the Magician)
A Gypsies' Tale by G. MARTINEZ SIERRA
Music by MANUEL DE FALLA
BETTY BANNERMAN (Contralto)
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by F. WEIST HILL)
THE story of this ballet by the celebrated
Spanish playright, Martinez Sierra , is founded on a folk-tale the gruesome subject of which is the ghostly jealousy of a young gypsy woman's dead lover, who appears to her and her new lover whenever these two are thrown passionately together and terrifies them into separation. Candelas, the young gypsy, attempts by various dances and other rites to exorcise the spectre, but it is not until she employs her friend, Lucia, to distract the furious ghost, while she is with her lover that she is enabled to get rid of him for ever. The music was composed in 1915, and was first performed with a small orchestra at the Teatro de Lara, Madrid. It was subsequently re-written for a normal theatre orchestra and danced by La Argen tina, who has made the part of Candelas her own. This ballet, by the way, is not the only one in which Sierra and Falla have collaborated. The Three-Cornered Hat was also the work of these two.
