: DANCE Music

THE ELYSÉE FIVE, from the Piccadilly Danse Salon


1. PURCELL (1658-1695)
BETWEEN the period that saw the decline of Elizabethan music and the middle of last century, England produced only one really distinguished Composer, Henry Purcell. His genius was recognized in his life-time, for he was appointed Organist of Westminster Abbey at tho age of twenty, and a few years later he became, in addition, Organist of the Chapel Royal.
Suite from the Opera, ' King Arthur '
Overture; Introduction to Act II. ; Lively Dance ; Hornpipes ; Britannia Rises ; Grand Danco
II. ARNE (1710-1778)
THOMAS AUGUSTINE ARNE , Doctor of Music, was a maker of good tunes, as Where the Bee Sucks and Rule! Britannia bear witness to this day. But for this priceless gift, he would not have ranked with the musicians of history, and even with it he does not stand high among them. He was a writer of small things, some of them immortal.

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.
