(Leader, Alfred Barker )
Conductor, T. H. MoRRisoN
The traditional German children's prayer which Humperdinck has embodied in his fairy opera asks for fourteen angels to stand guard until the morning. Two are asked to stand at the sleeper's head, two at his feet, two at his right side. two at his left, and so on, to keep guard over thoughts, ways and heart. In the opera angels appear actually to come down from Heaven and take their stand about the sleeping children, as the curtain falls at th'.end of the second act.
The plot of Hansel and Gretel is taken from Grimm's fairy tales. It tells of the witch who enticed boys and girls to her gingerbread house, and then cooked and ate them. The witch having captured Hansel and his sister and tied them up, rides through the air upon her broom, singing in triumph.

THE POTTERIES
CHORAL SOCIETY
Chorus Master, CARL OLIVER
FODENS MOTOR WORKS BAND
Conducted by F. MORTIMER
Few musicians have had so adventurous a life as Vincent Wallace , composer of Maritana. His father was a military bandmaster, and the young Wallace was born in Waterford, Ireland, in 1812. Much of his early manhood was spent in Australia, farming and fiddle-playing, and later in all parts of the world. In 1845, however, he was again in London, and someone seems to have suggested to him that he should compose an opera. Maritana was the result; it appeared near the end of 1845 and was an immediate and assured success. It has ever since maintained its hold on the popular affections, although Wallace himself wrote other and better works afterwards.
