Scope and content

Quartet strings [1932?] for 2 violins, viola and violoncello MS copy by Elise Desprez. The date for this quartet is given as 1932 or 33 on this manuscript copy. A note at the bottom of the last page of the score mentions that this score is a copy by Elise Desprez, with a few uncorrected mistakes. The note also adds: "First performance Jan 22nd 1934. Macnaghten-Lemare Concerts, Ballet Club Theatre, Notting Hill Gate, London. Several other performances, and one or two broadcast performances, all by Macnaghten Quartet, playing from memory, therefore no parts were copied." A note on the final blank page requests that this be returned to Anne Macnaghten, Mead Hall, Little Walden, Saffron Walden, Essex.
