Programme Notes: 

Proframme notes by D.F.T.  Professor notes in the programme about the two works by F.S.Kelly:  "The Serenade and the Elegy are two contrasting works, and the opportunity of presenting them together gives the best means of showing the full range of thought which the composer had time to express."  Kelly served on the same French hospital ship as Rupert Brooke and his death on board made an impression on Kelly, such that he composed the "Elegy" in his memory.  An account of the work, written by Leonard Borwick for a concert at Eton College in 1916 is headed:  "The Last Work of Frederick Septimus Kelly, D.S.C., killed in action before Beaucourt, November 13, 1916."
