100 YEARS OF THE HALLE, by C. B. Rees (MacGibbon and Kee, 21s.).

MANCHESTER'S Halle Orches

tra has been in existence fol a hundred years—and is proud of its unbroken record. When the Halle collies to play in London, it is an event-no small triumph of the provinces over the metropolis. C. B. Rees. only recently resigned from the post of Music Press Officer of the B.B.C., got his early. musical education as a young man in Manchester listening to the Halle, and this book. one feels, has been a labour of love. For us it is a valuable historical record.

The early associations of the HaU were solidly German, with Sir Charles Halle, its founder. and after him Hans Richter—two great names of the 19th century. Later, after a series of famous guest conductors. came the mercurial Sir Hamilton Harty. Today, need anyone he told that it is Sir John Barbirolli who is in brilliant command?

Sir John has turned down many an offer in order to remain with the Halle. He loves it. and as he says in his foreword: " Let us praise it with devoted pride and cherish it with jealous zeal."
