The Guardian also reported this event, and gives more information on the concert, so that we can learn that the works played were A London Overture, These Things Shall Be and Walton’s Belshazzar’s Feast, as well as his lesser-known In Honour of the City of London, this item receiving its first London performance under the baton of the composer.
