Thirty years earlier on the same date in 1918, Albert Sammons and William Murdoch gave a recital in Cambridge’s Guildhall as part of CUMS. The duo, both in their wartime khaki, played Ireland’s Second Violin Sonata, while Murdoch included ‘The Island Spell’ within a collection of pieces for solo piano.
