8.45 THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE : An appeal on behalf of the Manchester and Salford Boys' and Girls' Refuges and Homes, by tho Chairman, Mr. HARRY E. GADDUM , J.P.
(Donations should be sent to [address removed].)


Unknown: Mr. Harry E. Gaddum


Members of the HALLÉ CHORUS, conducted by HAROLD DAWBER
THIS Pianoforte and 'Cello Sonata (Beethoven's
Op. 69) is perhaps the finest of the five ho wrote for these instruments. In its delightful poise and breadth it bespeaks the mature artist, master alike of his medium and his moods.
Of its four Movements the Scherzo (tho Second), with its leaping syncopations, has a peculiar tang in it that most people, when they have tasted it once, particularly want to savour again.
THE first of these choruses from Sullivan's setting of Longfellow's poem is sung in the fourth Scene of the Cantata, when the heroine, Elsie, insists upon giving her lifo to save her lover's. The Attendants sing :
0 pure in heart! from thy sweet dust shall grow
Lilies upon whoso petals will bo written ' Ave Maria ' in characters of gold.
The second chorus is an Evening Hymn sung by peasants.
The third extract is sung by Elsie and her
Attendants when, on the road to Salerno (where she is to make her sacrifice) they have encamped at evening on a height overlooking tho sea.
THE first extract is tho famous Bridal Chorus in which, at the end of tho marriage ceremony of Elsa and her deliverer Lohengrin, tho nobles of Brabant greet tho happy pair.
HANDEL'S music, which sings the praises of tho Lord as a man of war, who caused Pharaoh's hosts to perish in the Rod Sea, is one of those splendid, rolling pieces in which ho so finely caught the spirit of the words.
As an expression of fierce Old Testament exultation in the fall of foes it is not easily beaten.
Comparo this with. Sterndalo Bennett 's music to anotner view of Omnipotence-as the holy Spirit, who must be worshipped in spirit and in truth.

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.
