Meeting held at 39, Eastern Avenue, 6th June ’42 A. B. Dilks in the chair.<br/> 1. Apologies for absence were read from Muriel Stevens and Mary Stansfield<br/> 2. The minutes of the last meeting were read and signed.<br/> [...]<br/> 6. After some refreshment, we spent the rest of the evening listening to recorded exaamples of programme Music. The works played were <br/>The Storm from Symphony No 6 in F “The Pastoral” Beethoven <br/>Enigma Variations Elgar <br/>‘Prospero’, ‘Miranda’, ‘Caliban’ from Sibelius incidental music to The Tempest <br/>Zeller’s ‘Nightingale Song’ sung by Elisabeth Schuman[n]. This was put on as an example of imitative music, of little musical worth, but was obviously much enjoyed by many members. <br/>Richard Strauss’ Tone Poem Till Eulenspiegle’s [sic] Merry Pranks. and ‘Romeo & Juliet’ Fantasy overture by Tchaikovsky. Isabel Taylor prefaced each item with brief biographical notes about the composer, and Bruce Dilks explained the literary or poetical idea of the work and also played the gramophone. <br/>Howard R.
