by Herbert Read
In his new book on Giovanni-Lorenzo Bernini , Rudolf Wittkower contends that Bernini's sculpture represents a return to the discipline and dynamic vigour of Michelangelo. Sir Herbert Read examines this contention. His talk is occasioned by the publication of two recent works: Professor Wittkower's The Sculptures of Bernini, and Michelangelo: a Study in the Nature of Art by Adrian Stokes.

A programme of music played and introduced by Susi Jeans
John Lugge was organist at Exeter Cathedral during the first half of the seventeenth century.
The music for this programme, some of it for double organ, was recorded on the Father Smith organ at Compton Wynyates, by permission of the Marquess of Northampton. This organ dates from the time of Charles II and is the oldest two-manual instrument in Britain.
