: A MILITARY BAND CONCERT

MAY HUXLEY (Soprano) JOHN THORNE (Baritone)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by B. WALTON O'DONNELL
THAT the popular conductor of the B.B.C. Military
Band in London is much more than a thoroughly equipped Military Bandmaster, has long ago been made abundantly clear by the success of his orchestral music and songs, to name two other directions in which he is best known to the great listening public. And ho is, of course, particularly happy in making use of the folk songs of his native Ireland.
The first of these two Sketches, The Mountain
Sprite, begins with a plaintive tune for the English hom alone. Like a free Recitative, it is an expressive and sad little tune such as a shepherd among the hills might play on his pipe in solitude. That furnishes a little introduction and then in a gently moving time a clarinet solo plays the flowing tune. It leads straight into a bustling little section with a brisk melody, and then the first part returns, now with something of sorrow in its mood. The movement is rounded off by a little return of the opening tune for the English horn.
The second piece is called By the Pattern, a pattern being a danco at the crossroads. It is supposed that the word was derived from ' Patron,' and that the dance was originally in honour of St. Patrick. Two bars of introduction serve to bring in the merry tune played, to begin with, on the clarinet. It hurries along on nimble feet, but in the middle is in. terrupted by a slow section which the brasses begin with a solo. Then the merry dance returns to bring the piece to an end with boisterous vigour.

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.
