THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL
THIS Suite has always been popular: it has a story running through the music somewhat as follows :-
A little girl who is too poor to have any of the good things of Christmas, watches other more fortunate children enjoying their feast. In a dream her dead mother comes to her and shows her a Christmas tree. With a fairy prince in the dream with her she sees the toys come from the tree, dance, and give her presents. At the end angels appear from Heaven, and take her to join her mother there.
The Suite is in six movements, (1) Valse, (2)
Procession of Gnomes, (3) Dance of the Mummers; (4) Dance of Chinese Dolls, (5) The Heavenly Ladder, (6) Dark Night.

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
