Evidence

Meeting held at 39, Eastern Avenue. 8th Nov. 1943 A. Bruce Dilks in the chair. <br/> 1. The minutes of the last meeting were read. Frank Knight immediately proved what an asset he is to the club, by pointing out that minute 3 reported the election of a committee, but did not make it at all clear what functions this committee was to fulfil. The matter was adjusted & the minutes signed. <br/> [...] <br/> 3. The evening was devoted to a study of English Music. Margaret Dilks explained that the choice of programme had been influenced partly by the gramophone records that were available, and the hope that in this choice everyone would find at least something which pleased and interested them. Those who liked to take it as a mild protest against the Russian invasion of our concert programs were at liberty to do so. As the meeting was held on the 60th anniversary of the birthday of Sir Arnold Bax, the Master of the King’s Musick, it seemed a most appropriate choice. First, Margaret Dilks outlined the development of music in England from the 4th Century to the present day. She told of its earliest beginnings, its rise to pre-eminence in the Tudor period when English composers and executive musicians led the world, its decline during the 19th Century, and its renaissance in recent times. <br/> 4. [...] Before the Butterworth records were played Kenneth Nicholson told us something of the Shropshire Lad poems & A. E. Houseman <br/><br/> [signed as a true record by] Muriel M. Stevens 2.12.43. [at the club meeting held at Gower Cottage: see Minute Book, p. 168]
