Overture, ' Tannhäuser'
THE Pilgrims' Chant, approaching and withdrawing, the wild Dance of the Maidens of the Venus Mount, Knight Tannhäuser's Love Invocation, the Rising of Venus, the Love Song again, the Wild Revels of the Court of Venus, the Pilgrims' Chant once more-these make up the famous and popular Overture to Tannhdtiser.
Thus is pictured the eternal strife between the carnal and the spiritual, and it will be noted that the spiritual wins.

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.
