Dear Boyd Neel
How about this for a programme
1. Handel Concerto            15
2. Arensky                         16
3. Brandenburg                 15 (?)
4. Dives & Lazarus            12 ) both conducted
5. Brook Green Suite         12 )  by me
6. Elgar                            12
                                       ___
                                        82
      elbow room 10m        10               
                                     ____
                                        92
          i.e. 2.30-4.2.
Should we have room for the Grieg as well
That would finish the concert at 4.15 approx - what about the order - ought we not to have the Elgar more in the middle?
Let me know about the order before Dec 3d as I must send the notice to the local paper that day.  If we can't have the harp we could do another Grieg perhaps - that popular "Frühling" isn't it.
