TUHERE The Messiah stands in the esteem of the musical public Bach's Mass in B Minor stands in the esteem of musicians. It is held in veneration that is by no means distant, for a performance of this mighty, complicated and 'intellectual 'work is looked upon as something to be enjoyed, in spite of the arduous effort of listening that it entails.
The Mass was written, and is always sung, to Latin words. It has five principal sections, known by the opening words of each.: Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus and Agnus Dei. Strietly
- speaking, there is no division into Part I and Part II, but in most performances a break is made after the Gloria, and 'Part II' begins with the ■Credo.
CREDO.
This has nine movements:—
Credo in unum Deum (I believe in one God). This is chorus founded on a Gregorian I line that passes from voice to voice and forms a continuous backbone to the music.
Patrem. omnipotentem (Thr
Father Almighty). A chorus of great vigour.
Et in unum Dominum Jes
Christum (And in one Lord .fesus Christ). A duet of s.). prano and alto soloists.
El incarnatus est de Spiritu
Sancto (And was incarnate by the Holy Ghost). A chorus of quiet, tender, mysterious phrases.
Crucifixus (And was cruci. fied). A chorus, the music of which seems to remove itseH still further into mysteries be yond human ken. ' One of the .supreme utterances of music,' .says an authority, summing up what cannot be explained.
Et resurrexit tertia die (And the third day He rose again).
A jubilant chorus.
Et in Spiritum sanctum (And [I believe] in the Holy Ghost). A solo for bass, in a gently swinging rhythm.
Confiteor unum baptisma (I acknowledge one
Baptism). A chorus, very ' learned ' in style, from which an old Plain Chant tune emerges now in one voice, now in another. -
SANCTUS.
Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus (Holy, holy, holy).
A chorus, quite beyond description. While the upper voices, in long, undulating phrases, depict the Seraphim that' cried unto another,' the lower voices sing a motive in mighty octaves that 'arches heaven.'
Osanna in excelsis (Hosanna to the highest).
Yet another chorus ; an outburst of joyful adoration, in a quick, urgent rhythm.
Benedictus qni renit (Blessed is he that eometh).
A tenor solo, nccompanied by many sinuous phrases in the instrumental part.
AGNUS DEI.
Agnus Dei , qui tollis peccata mundi (0 Lamb of God, that takeat away the sins of the world).
An alto solo, one of the most melodious movements in the Mass.
Dona nobis pacem (Grant us [Thy] peace).
A chorus constructed out of one of the finest melodies in music and bringing the work to its end in a mood of confidence and devotion.
(One or more of the movements described above may be omitted for this evening's performance.)

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.
