Availability of records
Inclusion of an item in the catalogue does not necessarily mean that it can be seen or copied. Some categories of records are closed to public access at the request of the owner or depositor who may have imposed copying conditions; a publication may be within copyright; or copying may not be possible because of the physical condition of the document.

Records closed to public inspection
A small number of records in the catalogues are closed to public access for a defined period because they include sensitive personal data or confidential information. In these instances, Croydon Local Studies Library and Archives Service has given an explicit assurance to the depositor of the records that they will be closed to public access for a specified period. Closed records are identified and the period of closure is also given in the catalogue entry.

Croydon Philharmonic Society Recordings: Five Tudor Portraits by Ralph Vaughan Williams

  • AR28
  • Collection
  • [27 Jan] 1937

5 lacquered aluminium gramophone disks, carrying recording of R. Vaughan Williams, Five Tudor Portraits (disjointed excerpts), performed by BBC Symphony Orchestra and Croydon Philharmonic Society, etc, and broadcast on the BBC National Programme, 27 Jan 1937.

Five Tudor Portraits consists of settings of poems By John Skelton (1460-1529). It was first performed in September 1936 at the Norwich Festival. This recording is from its first London performance, broadcast on the BBC on 27 Jan 1937. The broadcast ran from 8.44pm to 9.32pm: it therefore overran slightly, and the 9.30 Greenwich Time Signal can be heard towards the end of the recording.

Another performance was given at North End Hall, Croydon, on 4 Dec 1937, by Croydon Philharmonic Society and the London Symphony Orchestra. Vaughan Williams was in the audience, and this performance was also broadcast.

The discs are numbered 418-421 and 492. The recording appears to have been made on a single disc cutting machine. There are therefore lost pieces of the performance between sides, due to side changing; and there are also recording skips, due to cutting errors, on sides 1 and 6. Approximately 35 minutes of recorded material survives, from a performance lasting 48 minutes. Disc 492 (one sided) is a different generation recording from the rest of the material, and fills the skip on side 6. It may have been dubbed from another recording of the same performance; or it is possible (although unlikely) that it was taken from the December performance.
