Collection Description

Collection Title
F. Gilbert Webb collection: Stock Exchange Orchestral Society (1904-13)
Unique Identifier
Mus. 318 d.31
The second of two boxes of material relating to the Stock Exchange Orchestral and Choral Society, including a largely complete sequence of programme books for performances given at the Queen's Hall, London, during the 21st to 30th seasons, 1904-1913.

These were two-part choral and orchestral concerts with some vocal and instrumental solos, including certain works being performed for the first time.

The chorus was conducted throughout by Mr Munro Davison. The orchestra was conducted by Arthur W. Payne (21st-25th season), Allen Gill (26th-28th season), S. Coleridge-Taylor (29th season) and W. H. Reed, Hamish MacCunn and George Kitchin (30th season).

The programmes include words and Historical and Analytical Notes by Edgar F. Jacques and F. Gilbert Webb (with musical examples), lists of the Officers, Members and Stewards of the organization, and records of the choral and orchestral ensembles.

Certain programmes also carry handwritten annotations, some quite extended, which offer analytical observations on the performance and on the works performed.
