Bavarian Royal Wedding of 1568


We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
In February 1568 the Heir to the Throne of Bavaria, Duke Wilhelm, married Princess Renée of Lorraine. The Munich wedding and the fortnight-long celebrations which followed were chronicled in a series of dialogues by Massimo Troiano, one of the singers in the court Kapelle. His Dialoghi are the basis of this three-part feature, with Leo McKern, Cyril Shaps, Taverner Consort, Choir and Players, Natural Trumpet Ensemble or The Schola Cantorum Basiliensis
Part 1
21 February: Arrival of the Bride; Meeting of the Bride and Groom;
Solemn Reception in the Marienkirche.
The music includes Lassus Te Deum a 9 (composed for the occasion)
Lassus and the Munich Hofkapelle
The ruling Albrecht V of Bavaria maintained the most sumptuous musical establishment north of the Alps. Clive Wearing describes the Kapelle which under Lassus reached the summit of its glory at the time of the wedding.


Director: Edward H. Tarr
Conductor: Andrew Parrott

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.
