When, in 1873, Manzoni, the great Italian writer, died, Verdi (then aged sixty) wrote this Requiem Mass in his memory. The work was first heard in England two years later, when the composer conducted the Royal Choral Society in it.
The Southern warmth of emotion and dramatic fire of the music distinguish the Mass from the majority of older settings. There is little benefit in making easy comparisons between the spirit of this music and that of the sacred works of Bach, Handel and Beethoven. It is best to listen to it without too rigid a conception of what sacred music should be. Whatever its divergences from the common outlook, its picturesque and often flamboyant ideas will bo felt to be sincere and powerful.

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.
