Beth Britten et al. in London - 29 May, 1933

from Journeying boy : the diaries of the young Benjamin Britten 1928-1938, pages 141-142:

Go to another Jubilee Concert of R.C.M. with Beth. Adrian Boult conducting orchestra of old students. V. Dull programme. Schubert, Rosamunde scrapily & dully played - in the true Boult fashion. Somerville's ghastly Normandy var. 3 Butterworth songs (Keith Falkner) P. Hadly 'The Trees so high'. R.O. Morris Sinfonia (help!) Colegridge Taylor bit out of Hiawather. - then we fled!
