CATHERINE STEWART (Contralto) THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
'REDEMPTION,' the second of Cesar Franck 's oratorios, had a very unlucky introduction to the world. At the first rehearsals it was clear that the parts had been very badly copied, and although only two days remained before the second rehearsal, Franck's devoted pupil d'Indy, along with two others, carried out the big task of going over all the parts and having them put right. Even so, the performanco was not a satisfactory one, singers and players failing to understand the work, and by the end of the performance all but some fifty of the audience had drifted away. Franck himself was far Jess concerned than his pupils, and it was only after repeated pleadings on their part that he agreed to make some changes in the work. The most important of these was in this Symphonic Piece which he began by altering and ended by practically rewriting. In its original form it set forth first of all the world's joy in its redemption, and the triumph of faith over persecution and trials. And it went on to describe in music a later day when belief had faded and mankind had once more turned to pagan joys.
In the new form of the interlude which we now know it depicts only the joy of the world which has been transformed by the coming of the Saviour. Its poetic meaning is thus much simpler and more easily followed; it is certainly set forth with all Cesar Franck 's eloquence and melodic beauty.

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.
