THE STATION ORCHESTRA, conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS BACH'S Cantata Sleepers, Wake is a long fantasia on an old ' chorale ' tune of worship, well known in his day, called ' Wachet auf. ruft uns die Stimme (' Awake, the Voice is Calling '). The tune appears again and again in the Cantata, each time with a new embroidery of musical phrases about it, either sung by the choir or played by the Orchestra. SOUND an Alarm is one of the classic solos for Tenors of the heroic build. Against tho valiant Gorgias, who brings his proud victorious bands to root out Israel's strength,' Judas Maccabæus summons his country to war-' Sound an alarm ; your silver trumpets blow.' This was such an opportunity as Handel loved, as we may guess from his iine stentorian phrases for the voice and the fanfares of the accompaniment.


Conducted By: Joseph Lewis

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
