BACH'S half-dozen Motets are practically anthems, for double or single choir. Most of the works are shorter than the Cantatas, and contain no solo portions. The orchestral part, where there is one (as in the work now to be heard), is less independent than in the Cantatas. Generally the Motets can be effectively performed unaccompanied.
The Spirit also helpeth us was written in 1729 for the funeral service of the Rector of the Leipzig Church at which Bach was organist; it was employed later for general church use.
The words are taken from Romans viii, 26 and 27, with the addition of a verse of a Chorale. or hymn.


Unknown: Rev. W. H. Elliott

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.
