THE STATION AUGMENTED ORCHESTRA : Conductor, T. H. MORRISON THE Hymn of Praise, originally called a ' Symphony-Cantata,' was written in 1839-40 to celebrate the fourth centenary of the invention of printing by Gutenberg.
The composer described it as ' not a little Oratorioits plan being not dramatic but merely lyrical. Itconsists of an instrumental Symphony of three Movements, which leads to a great chorus, to which twelve [later altered to ten] other vocal pieces, solos and choruses succeed.'
The work is bound together by the recurrence of its opening melody, as a kind of ' motto,' both in the first two Movements of the Symphony and in the opening and closing choruses.
The Symphony which precedes the choral part of the work is in three Movements.

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.
