BBC Chorus
Conductor, Leslie Woodgate

The work by Hugo Cole, written last year, is a setting of a text by the fourteenth-century Scottish poet William Dunbar. David Cox's setting of Psalm 66 was also written last year: although influenced by early polyphony, it is contemporary in style.

Of The Nativitie Of Christ (first broadcast performance)...Hugo Cole

BBC Chorus
Leslie Woodgate

by A.J. Marshall, D.Phil.,, Reader in Zoology and Comparative Anatomy in the University of London

Reptiles rarely commend themselves to our notice, so it is somewhat of a surprise to find two books about them published simultaneously: The Reptile World by Clifford H. Pope, and Reptiles by Angus d'A.Bellairs. Dr. Marshall, who grew up in a snaky country, speaks about these zoologically interesting animals.
