Benjamin Britten in Royal College of Music - 11 December, 1931

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, page 92:

Go to RCM. in evening for 3rd performance of Bridge's Christmas Rose & Armstrong Gibbs' Blue Peter (awful tripe). I like the Xmas R. more than ever - altho' the second Miriam was not as good as the first (Eugenie Walmsley).
