D. F. TOVEY , Mus. Doc. (Reid Professor of Music, Edinburgh University)
Donald Francis Tovey , pianist, composer, and Reid Professor of Music in Edinburgh University, was born at Eton in 1875. From his early years he displayed remarkable musical gifts. At the age of nineteen he was elected Lewis Nettleship scholar at Balliol College, Oxford, and four years later graduated in classical honours in 1S98.
Tovey's scholarship is immense, and on the music of Bach and Beethoven he is undoubtedly the foremost English authority. In addition to an extraordinary memory for and detailed knowledge of almost the entire range of classical music, he possesses a quick wit and a brilliant aptitude for simile that make his lectures, pamphlets, and analytical notes the most stimulating of their kind.
In this series of talks beginning this evening Professor Tovey will go through the whole of Beethoven's sonatas, devoting two talks to the analysis of each sonata and one to its performance.

The well-known collection of- national songs known as ' The Scottish Students' Song Book,' dates from over forty years ago. It had a distinguished beginning ; the Committee formed to edit it was composed of representatives from the four great Scottish Universities, and the compilation occupied them for a year or more. ' The want of a collection of songs for the use of students has long been felt in Scotland ', said the editors in launching the book, which was, in the end, used not only by University students, but by thousands of schools, clubs, and gatherings in all parts of the British Isles. So that to-day there is no such ' want' as inspired the first editors. Competitive festivals, community singing, and similar activities have made the old songs so part of everyday life, that students' song books are published in these times by the score.

JO VINCENT (soprano)
Brahms's ' Feldeinsamkeit' is one of his finest songs. All singers agree on that-it is so acceptable to sing for one thing. The singer lies in the grass in the noontide of a sleepy summer's day, and gazes with dreamy happiness at the blue skies and white clouds and hears the hum of insects. He feels ' as though he long were dead and borne along to heaven '.
