Sonata in A, Op. 47 played by Gioconda de Vito (violin)
Tito Aprea (piano) on a gramophone record
by the Rev. B. M. G. Reardon
During the past three or four decades the theology of Liberalism usually associated with a group of nineteenth-century German scholars has suffered an almost total eclipse. The speaker argues that the extreme objectivism of Barthian dogmatics needs urgent correction; and that the old liberals were seriously concerned, like the Christian existentialists today, with the problem of communicating the Gospel in a sceptical atmosphere.

' Mackintosh's Lament'
(sixteenth century) '
Pibroch is the classical music of the bagpipes. There is an old saying that it takes ' seven years of his own learning and seven generations before' to make a piper: it requires that time at least to make a good pibroch player. The ground of the piece and the movements that follow demand careful practice and preparation; and all pibrochs are performed from memory.
