Sir Henry Wood and BBC Symphony Orchestra play 'Serenade to Music' - dupe of PT 451.
Titles read: 'SIR HENRY WOOD AND MEMBERS OF THE B.B.C. SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA - IN VAUGHAN WILLIAMS "SERENADE TO MUSIC"'.
Voiceover tells how "millions of radio listeners heard the Albert Hall broadcasts of the massed orchestras and sixteen famous soloists in connection with Sir Henry's Jubilee Fund. By courtesy of Columbia Gramophone Company we are watching the BBC Symphony Orchestra and such notable soloists as Isobele Bailey, Styles Alan, Elsie Suddaby, Eva Turner, Margaret Balfour, Muriel Brunskill, Asta Desmond, Mary Garred, Parry Jones, Hedle Nash, Frank Titterton, Walter Widop, Norman Alan, Robert Eastern, Roy Henderson and Harold Williams. (Some of these names may not be quite correct owing to the quality of the sound and the speed of delivery.)
While the orchestra plays, Ralph Vaughan Williams can be seen seated at the conductors feet, following the score.
The lyrics appear on the screen as the chorus sings: "Here we will sit and let the sounds of music, Creep in our ears". Cutaways of gramophone record being cut during the performance.
Sound on this combined print is not too clear.
This is duplicate of item in Pathetone PT 451 and Turns Can 21 - see separate records for details.
