: BISHOP AND BENEDICT

From Birmingham
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
SIR HENRY ROWLEY BISHOP (1786 1855), once a very popular figure in English Opera, is now remembered by little save a few songs from his extremely numerous works. One song alone has achieved immortality—Home, Sweet Home, which comes from a work named Clari, produced in 1823.
SIR JULIUS BENEDICT was a German who followed in the steps of Handel by spending a great deal of his life in England. Like Handel, too. he was extremely popular here for nearly fifty years, from 1835 until his death. Earlier in life he had the good luck to impress Weber, who for several years treated him, as Benedict himself said, ' Not only as pupil, but as a son.'
He is remembered now by very few works, chief among them being The Lily of Killarney. The bass air, Rage, thou angry storm, comes from his first English opera, The Gipsy's Warning, which was produced in 1838.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
