(From Birmingham)
THE BIRMINGHAM STUDIO ORCHESTRA
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL
As one of the original members of the Royal
Philharmonic Society, and as one of the leading composers of his own day-the first half of last century-Sir Henry Bishop was an outstanding figure in the English world of music. He was an industrious composer for the stage, especially for the Opera at Covent Garden and Drury Lane, but his fame today rests rather on some of his smaller pieces, like the song ' Lo, hero the gentle lark.' One reason for the disappearance of his operas is no doubt the poor quality of the librettos which were provided for him; as listeners may hear in this Overture, the music has many of the qualities which entitle it to a lasting popularity.
He wrote sacred music also, as well as three volumes of the ' National Melodies,' for which Moore wrote the poetry; he did notable work, too, in editing older music.
The Overture to The Miller begins with a pompous, slow section in which first oboe and then flute have melodies, interrupted ever and anon by emphatic outbreaks from the whole orchestra. Then there is a lively section with a bustling theme in which most of the orchestra shares, with the woodwinds in turn having little solo phrases. It finishes, in faster time, with still more robust vigour, and then there is a little arietta with a solo for cornet. That leads to a waltz where oboe, bassoon, and cornet in turn play the themo, clarinets afterwards taking it up. The rhythm grows more lively and finishes the Overture with a sense of real bustle and energy, still in the waltz measure.

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.
