Relayed from Shire Hall, Gloucester
THE Gloucester Orpheus Society, which consists of some sixty male voice singers, was established in 1899 by Sir A. Herbert Brewer , organist of Gloucester Cathedral. Its first president was Sir C. Hubert H. Parry , who held that office until his death. The society appeared with great success at a Three Choirs Festival some years ago, and in March, 1924, it gave a concert at the Central Hall, Westminster, London, when its performance received the most favourable recognition from the London critics, Mr. Percy Scholes describing it as ' one of the finest Male Voice Choirs he had heard.' It has been invited to take part in the forthcoming Concert to be given in honour of Custav Hoist, a,t Cheltenham, the composer's native town.
The present Musical Director is Mr. S. W. Underwood, whose exceptional ability as a choral conductor is widely known.

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.
