Mr. E. KAY
ROBINSON, ' Fishes Which Fight'

: DEDICATION OF THE LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL ORGAN.

S.B. from Liverpool
LIVERPOOL CATHEDRAL itself is one of -LJ the greatest enterprises in ecclesiastical architecture that have been embarked upon in this country since the Reformation. Designed in 1904 by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott , then a young architect almost unknown, it has been building ever since, and, though it is still far from complete, the eastern part was dedicated last year. The organ, which has now been installed, is the largest in the country, and there is only one larger in existence in the world.
Dr. David, who is performing the dedicatory service, has been Bishop of Liverpool since 1923. Amongst other academic positions, he was formerly Dean of Queen's College, Oxford, and Headmaster of Clifton College, and of Rugby School. From 1921 to 1923 he was Bishop of Edmundsbury and Ipswich. Mr. H. Goss-Custard has been organist at the Cathedral since 1917.

: EASTHOPE MARTIN

(Died October 18, 1925)
KATE WINTER (Soprano)
HERBERT HEYNER (Baritone) ANNE GODFREY (Solo Violin)
THE WIRELESS ORCHESTRA : Conducted by JOHN ANSELL
EASTHOPE MARTIN was born in Ireland in 1883. He received his musical education at Trinity College of Music, and was at one time Organist at the Æolian Hall in London. Later, he went to the United States as a Concert
Organist.
He is best known as a song-writer, though his more serious art-songs are not so much sung as are his lighter ballads, in which he had a charming facility and a sure touch. His cycle Songs of the Fair, sung this evening, is one of the greatest favourites among such works.

Interpreted by Gordon Bryan
John Ireland: Amberley Wild Brooks; Ragamuffin; April; Soho Forenoons
John Ireland was born at Bowdon, in Cheshire, in 1879. He has written music in most branches, vocal and instrumental, but by far the greatest part of his output up to the present has been Chamber Music, Piano Music, and Songs.
The adjective 'rugged' is commonly used in describing his music. It applies especially to his larger instrumental works. His Songs (and, indeed, his Piano pieces) have far more of the quality of definite charm.
Amberley Wild Brooks is a brisk little outdoor picture Ragamuffin is one of three London Pieces. It is a delightful sketch of a Cockney urchin who goes his swaggering way, jauntily singing and whistling. As is the habit of such people, he repeats the same fragments of tune many times. At last he sings a bit of The Old Kent Road, and with a piercing whistle and a cheeky little gesture, disappears.
April is another pleasant mood-piece.
Soho Forenoons begins with a rhythm marked quasi Tambourine. We are in one of London's foreign quarters, amongst happy children, dancing to street music.

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.
