George Dyson
Dr. Dyson will discuss a problem fundamental to the understanding of music: that of time. Music is a succession of moments of which we can hear only one at a time, and it is moreover a language in which we have not only to hear the words, melody, harmony, etc., but to accustom ourselves to the pace at which they are delivered. Thus, the first effort of the listener must be to understand the framework of time, that is, the rhythm and pulsations. Having grasped that, the listener must find and place in due perspective the various thoughts, contrasts, variations, and repetitions that make up the form of the work. All Dr. Dyson's talks will be fully illustrated at the piano.

A programme of poetry
The poems selected and introduced by W. B. Yeats and read by V. C.
Clinton Baddeley
The object of this programme, which W. B. Yeats has come over from Ireland to produce and superintend, is to show that poetry can still be popular even in England, when it is made exciting. The poems chosen are Belloc's ' Do you remember an inn, Miranda ? ', Chesterton's ' Rolling English Road ', de la Mare's ' Three Jolly Farmers ', Newbolt's ' Drake's Drum ', Sylvia Townsend Warner 's ' The Sailor ', and York Powell 's ballad 'The Sailor and the Shark '.
No music will accompany
Clinton Baddeley 's voice, but a drum, and possibly a pipe, will be used between the poems and between the stanzas to emphasise the rhythm and to give the right atmosphere. ' The Sailor and the Shark' will be sung, but without accompaniment.
