[There was an exhibition of some of the treasures from the Heron-Allen collection at the Royal College. By kind
permission of Pat Naismith we were able to see one of the two violins made by Heron-Allen and to hear it being
played. We also heard the song, 'The Ballade of my Lady's Glance' composed by Edward Heron-Allen and selections
from 'In a Persian Garden' composed by Liza Lehmann, Edward Heron-Allen's sister-in-law]
