: An Organ Recital

Relayed from First Presbyterian Church,
Rosemary Street
Félix Alexandre Guilmant (1837-1911), one of the most celebrated French organists of the nineteenth century, wrote a great deal of music for the organ of the highest distinction, much of which remains permanently in the modern organist's repertory.
He helped, with Charles Borde and Vincent d'Indy, to found the famous Schola Cantorum, and held a professorship there, as he did later also at the Paris Conservatoire. Among his many famous pupils are numbered Dupre and Bonnet. He toured extensively, not only in France, but in Europe, England and America.

The first movement of this symphony is full of exhilaration, and the first main tune is heard at the outset with real animation; the second theme, appearing after some development of the first, is no less buoyant.
For some reason which no one knows, the second movement is alwavs called ' The Pilgrims' March '. The first part of the movement is certainly serene and almost graceful as compared with the vivacity of the other three, and the introductory bars have been spoken of as ' a call to prayer '.
The customary Scherzo movement is here rather like a Minuet, while the last movement is in Tarantelle rhythm hurrying along at strenuous speed.

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.
