Fifth of twelve programmes of Havdn's choral works. Another performance: Wednesday, 7.10. Next concert: June 3
It was in 1796, when Napoleon's army was advancing irom Italy and threatening Vienna, that Haydn wrote his Mass in C major, to which he gave the Latin title Missa in tempore belli. The work is also sometimes known as the ' Kettledrum ' Mass. The background of war is suggested in the Agnus Dei by the use of trumpets and drums (thus anticipating Beethoven's employment of them in his Missa Solcnnis), and by the fanfare of wind instruments at the beginning of the Dona nobis pacem. H. R.

Second of two talks by Leo Kuper on some of the assumptions behind contemporary town planning The planner's efforts to provide for the growth of a community may be frustrated by the cpnflicting attitudes and needs of actual tenants, as the speaker found during recent research in a Midlands city: is a sociological kind of tenant selection the answer, or is there an alternative to such an extension of the powers of local authorities? Leo Kuper is Lecturer in Sociology at Birmingham University.
