Unlike the dance tunes of the present day, many of those of a former generation can still be played and enjoyed simply as music, without much thought of the dances for which they were written. The waltzes of Johann Strauss are among the best examples of such music, and there are many others scarcely less worthy. Joseph Gung 'l, at one time schoolmaster, then a soldier, and latterly a famous bandmaster and composer of marches and dance tunes, left some three hundred pieces, almost all full of delightful tunes and vigorous rhythm, many of which still figure from time to time in light and popuJar programmes.

Sung by OLGA HALEY (contralto) accompanied by THE BBC
NORTHERN ORCHESTRA
Leader, Alfred Barker
Conductor, T. H. MORRISON The story of Tchaikovsky's Joan of Arc does not agree with history. With true operatic licence it grossly distorts the facts ; for instance, Joan has not only one lover, but, later, a second. Air des Adieux occurs in the first Act; a Festival is taking place in the village and there is dancing and singing. Joan's father, however, is not in tune with this frivolity and desires Joan immediately to marry Raimond, her affianced, so that she may be protected in these troubled times. Joan, however, is already fired with her desire to free France from the enemy ; suddenly she rises up feeling the hour of action has come, and speaks as one inspired. In this aria she bids farewell to her native village.
