A Critical Summary
J. L. STOCKS, D.S.O. (Professor of Philosophy in the University of Manchester)
by ADOLPH HALLIS
In much the same manner as the later ' Carnaval ' of Schumann, this short pianoforte suite of twelve numbers can well be taken as a programmatic representation of a masked ball. To each number is attached as title some quality of character or mood taken from the vocabulary of gallantry, and with it a domino of associated colour-such as Modesty (in rose), Hope (in green), Ardour (in scarlet), Fidelity (in blue), Jealousy (in grey), Despair (in black) and others like them; twelve numbers in all.
There is no purpose in listing the whole of this very elaborate programme, which would take nearly as long to read as it does to listen to the music that illustrates it. It is quite enough to realise that the little suite is typical of Couperin and of the Court of his time. One is content to picture Couperin playing it before King Louis, in virtue of his office as ' Ordinaire de la musique de la chambre du roi ', and the ladies of the court thinking the music charming and the notion witty and gallant.

This is the second. of three talks about the stars for the man without a telescope, for anyone, in fact, with the inclination to go out into the garden after supper and look at the sky. Tonight, and again on January i, you will be able to gaze with Mr. R. L. Waterfield at the beauty of the night, and learn the names of some of the stars, and where to look for them. He will show you the Plough, which points out the North Star, that is as good as a compass if ever you should be lost at night.
