[Edna Bold has been recollecting her love of the countryside and the ‘change of consciousness’ it engendered in her as a child, as well as the joys of childhood friendships]

 

In the mean time, between these mind-expanding moments of true living, there was the ‘feed in’ of information from every quarter, from school in particular. The more distinguished people in Manchester gave talks during school, after school, in school and out of school […] [on a range of subjects, including] Rawdon Briggs on ‘Music and Matter’. Rawdon Briggs had a natural rapport with children. He illustrated form and composition with violin pieces any child could understand and enjoy. He whetted our appetites for the Tuesday Midday concerts at the Houldsworth Hall. A whole form of girls would behave like angels to hear violin, piano, lieder recitals. We heard so many soloists but I remember best the piano playing of Jo Lamb, Dorothy Crewe, Lucy Pearse, the violin playing of Rawdon Briggs and the piano playing of Hamilton Harty as he accompanied his wife, Agnes Nichols [sic].
