Miss C. A. LEJEUNE

: From Plainsong to Purcell

The Foundations of English Music
Under the direction of Sir RICHARD RUNCIMAN TERRY
Tudor Church Music—I
Latin motets sung by a small choir
Last week we heard examples of Plainsong and Folksong (the latter including carols), together with a few compositions founded on both.
This week we trace the progress of English music from early examples (some of them rather crude) founded on some Plainsong tune to later ones When the composer gave free rein to his imagination.
We have included such later composers as Philips and Dering, although their Latin music was written after the Reformation. That of Philips was written for continental use as he fled abroad at the Reformation, settled on the continent and published all his music at Antwerp.
Dering also spent much time on the continent, finally returning to England as organist to the private chapel of Henrietta-wife of Charles I. But as both Philips and Dering display the characteristics of their predecessors, their music could hardly be omitted from this series.
Robert Johnson is an interesting figure. He was a Scottish priest, was delated (before the Reformation, of course) for heresy ; fled to England and settled down there. The few compositions of his which are still extant show him to have been a writer of real distinction. His music follows the 'English' tradition so distinctively that he has been included in this series. Are we to regard him as a naturalised Englishman or a renegade Scotsman ? The point is too knotty (and even devastating) to be decided here, I am afraid.—R.R.T.

Siegfried Idyll

: STILES-ALLEN AND ORCHESTRA

Closing Scene (Gotterdammerung)
The Closing Scene of The Dusk of the Gods is also the end of The Ring Cycle. The body of Siegfried has been set upon a funeral pyre at Brünnhilde's behest. She now calls for her horse, Grane, and pronounces Siegfried's epitaph and the doom of the gods. She takes the Ring from Siegfried's finger and places it on her own, then seizes a torch and fires the logs. Mounting her horse, she leaps with him into the flames.
As the fire blazes and spreads to the Hall itself the Rhine overflows its banks, bringing with it the Rhine Maidens who have come for the Ring. Hagen attempts to seize it from them, and is drawn by them into the flood. Meanwhile, the flames seem to have spread to the heavens, and have reached even the distant Castle of Valhalla, where Wotan with the gods seated round him is seen surrounded by the flames which destroy them all. The ' Curse ' has been fulfilled.

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, and programmes to purchase from BBC Store and other providers.

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
