A Eitornella is a symphony before, between, or following a melody. " Love's Ritor-nella" was written by James Robinson Planche, the well-known English author and musi­cal critic, who was born in London, February 27, 1796. He prepared for the stage two hundred pieces, original or translated, and published various works, one of the latest of which is a professional autobiography. He died in London, May 29, 1880. A Loudon friend says of him: " Late in life, when he had hoped to repose on his laurels, his daughter was left a widow, and other misfortunes threw his children's children largely on his hands. But he bravely accepted the position, and without a murmur; and possibly to this very fact the world may owe the two latest and ripest productions of his green old age."
