: SIR WALFORD DAVIES

At THE ORGAN of St. GEORGE'S CHAPEL,
WINDSOR CASTLE
Assisted by MALCOLM BOYLE
TN connection with his broadcast, Sir
Walford has written a message for his listeners :
' It is delightful to have an opportunity to speak about organ music with illustrations at the keyboard in St. George's Chapel, Windsor. As it happens, we have a double keyboard to our organ. So I shall propose to use it in order to play a Handel Organ Concerto (No. 3, in F Major) with the help of my follow organist, Mr. Malcolm Boyle ; one of us to play added accompaniments while the other plays the Handel solo part from Handel's rather scanty scores. This may be of special interest to listeners, and possibly gives a vivid picture of the original plan and effect of a concerto in Handel's hands.
' In addition to this, it occurs to me that listeners may well like to compare a few examples of the organ form known as choral-preludes ; and I hope to arrange to have half-a-dozen choir-boys in the organ loft to sing the chorals or hymn-tunes before playing compositions based upon them by Buxtehude, Bach, and others.
'What may be called the emplacement of the organ in St. George's is well-nigh perfect. The echo is resonant in the nave, yet sufficiently damped down by the stalls, massive woodwork, and the banners of the Knights of the Garter in the choir, thus giving perhaps an unusual blend of ringing tone with clear detail. With this in mind, I shall hope to have a chance to compare examples of organ music on its massive and majestic sido with its quiet and more intimate side.'

: ' MODERN ART '—V

Mr. J. E. BARTON : 'When shall we be Civilized ? '
IN this, the last but one of his talks on modern art, Mr. Barton shows how ' eye-culture,' or the development of beautiful rather than ugly surroundings, is actually a social and international force. There is a moral effect in the dignity, cleanliness, severity and serenity of the new style of architecture and town-planning. Foreign cities, such as Stockholm and Stuttgart, lead the way in this movement, and modem theatres and cinemas, hotels and ships, often display this tendency towards a greater simplicity in construction and decoration. Everywhere there is a reaction from the untidy squalor and lack of organization that was prevalent in the nineteenth century. This new movement is an aspect of growing civilization, the good manners of a people's mind showing itself in the streets.

: Brahms' Liebeslieder

(Love-Songs)
The Wireless Singers, conductor Stanford Robinson
These love-song waltzes puzzled the critical world; no one knew for certain whether to think of them as pianoforte duet with four vocal parts ad libitum, which is what Brahms called them, or as vocal quartet with accompaniment for pianoforte duet. Richly satisfying as the four hands of the pianoforte can be alone, the voice parts have no sense of being merely added as an after-thought; they have an independent and joyously-melodic importance of their own. In text and in music alike, they capture a great deal of the true folk spirit, in its gayest and most laughing mood. They were written in a very sunny period of Brahms' career, when he was beginning to be confidently assured of his position as a master of music, and they quickly added a great deal to his popularity with the German people as a whole. In this country we cannot pretend to know them at all so well as we do the Hungarian Dances, but in Germany they had almost as big a share in making his name the household word it has over since been there.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
