: Mr. H. G. PONTING: 'In Lotus-Land'

MR. PONTING is perhaps best known as the photographer who accompanied Scott's famous Antarctic Expedition of 1910-13, and recorded that historic feat in his well-known book, 'The Great White South.' He has, however, led an adventurous life in many parts of the globe, and his knowledge of Japan, the subject of his Talk to-night, was gained during three years of travel there, and a period of service as a war correspondent with the First Japanese Army during the Russo-Japanese War. He has published several books on Japan, including ' In Lotus Land,' the beautiful camera illustrations to which aroused general admiration when the book appeared.

THIS ' Symphonic Cantata ' was fully annotated recently. It will therefore suffice now to say that it was written in 1839-40 for the celebration of the fourth centenary of Gutenberg's invention of printing.
It Consists of three Movements of a Symphony, followed by ten vocal numbers-Solos and Duets for Sopranos and Tenor, and Choruses.
The melody with which the work opens is used as a kind of ' leading theme,' recurring both in the first two Movements of the Symphony and in the opening aid closing Choruses.
The FIRST MOVEMENT, brilliant and vigorous, has fine energy and breadth.
The SECOND MOVEMENT is based upon two
Main Tunes, one in a minor key and the other a major key ' chorale ' or hymn-tune, the lines of which are connected by the ' leading theme ' and by bits of the Movement's First Main Time.
The THIRD MOVEMENT begins quietly; becomes more restless, and finally leads into the Opening Chorus of the vocal part of the work-' All men, all things, all that have life and breath, sing to the Lord.'
The succeeding numbers are as follows :—
TENOR RECITATIVE, ' Sing ye praise, all ye redeemed ... from a deep affliction,' followed by AIR, ' He counteth all your sorrows.'
CHORUS, ' All ye that cried unto the Lord.'-
DUET FOR Two SOPRANOS, with CHORUS, ' I waited for the Lord..... 0 blessed are they that hope and trust in the Lord.'
TENOR AIR, The sorrows of death had closed all around me ... ; but said the Lord, " Come, arise from the dead ... I bring thee salvation." '
CHORUS, ' The night is departing..... Therefore let us cast off the works of darkness, and let us gird on the armour of light.'
CHORALE, Let all men praise the Lord.'
SOPRANO AND TENOR DUET, ' My song shall bo alway Thy mercy.'
FINAL CHORUS, ' Ye nations, offer to the Lord glory and might..... All that hath life and breath sing to the Lord.'

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.
