'April'
H. E. Piggott
April is the next month, When early in the morn I saw the cheery farmer A-sowing of his corn.
The gallant teams come after
A-smoothing of the land.
I hope all things may prosper
Whate'er he takes in hand.
The fourth talk on West Country
Folk Songs
The illustrations will be sung by Doreen Greenwood and Frederick Harvey

A masque for orchestra, chorus, and baritone solo by Constant Lambert
(Words by Thomas Nashe )
1 Intrata (Pastorale and Siciliana). 2 Fair Summer Droops (Madrigal con ritornelli). 3 Spring, the Sweet Spring (Coranto). 4 Trip and go, heave and ho! (Brawles). 5 Autumn (Madrigal con ritornelli). 6 Rondo burlesca (King Pest). 7 Adieu! farewell earth's bliss (Saraband)
The BBC Orchestra (Section D)
Led by Marie Wilson
The BBC Chorus (Section A)
Roy Henderson (baritone)
Conducted by the Composer
Constant Lambert's ' Summer's Last
Will and Testament' was written during the years 1932-5 and first performed at a BBC Symphony Concert in January, 1936. Although predominantly autumnal in mood, it runs through the cycle of the seasons. Lambert has called his work a ' Masque ' after the original Nashe play (1593) from which he has taken the words. Not only is the music a masterly piece of craftsmanship, but it contains some of the composer's most sensitive writing.
