St. David's Day: Clara Novello-Davies's Royal Welsh Ladies Choir


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.
This famous choir, which is to give a special St. David's Day programme, has won the highest honours at the World Fair in Chicago and the Paris Exhibition. As far back as 1894, when Queen Victoria was on the throne, it was taken under royal patronage. The singers usually perform in traditional Welsh costume.
Its founder and conductor, Madame Clara Novello-Davies, is now seventy-five years of age. She has specialised for many years in voice-building and breath control, and has written several books on these subjects. And like her son, Ivor Novello, she has composed a good deal of music.


Singers: Royal Welsh Ladies Choir
Conductor: Madame Clara Novello-Davies

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.
