Part 2 Demons, Angelicals, and Souls
Soul of Gerontius, I went to sleep ; and now I am refreshed
Angel, My work is done, My task is o'er
Angel and Soul, All hail, My child and brother, hail!
Demons, Lowborn clods of brute earth
Angel, It is the restless panting of their being
Demons, The mind bold and independent
Soul and Angel, I see not those false spirits
Angelicals, Praise to the Holiest in the height
Soul, The sound is like the rushing of the wind
Angelicals, Glory to Him
Angel, They sing of thy approaching agony
Soul, But hark! a grand mysterious harmony
Angel, And now the threshold as we traverse it
All Voices, Praise to the Holiest in the height
Angel and Soul, Thy judgment now is near
Angel of Agony, Jesu! by that shuddering dread which fell on Thee
Voices on Earth, Be merciful, be gracious, spare him, Lord
Angel, Praise to His Name Soul, Take me away
Souls in Purgatory, Lord, Thou hast been our refuge
Angel, Softly and gently, dearly-ransomed soul
Souls, Lord, Thou hast been our refuge
Angelicals, Praise to the Holiest

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
