Music for Choir and Orchestra by J. A. Moonie (11).
Words by W. E. Aytouu.
The Poem on which this Cantata is founded relates the battle of the Pass of Killiecrankie, and the death of the Scottish Leader. The barbaric excitement of this historic fight is vividly suggested in the score, and the impassioned ardour of the soldiers finds expression in strenuous themes.
After an opening solo of declamatory character, the chorus carries on the narrative to its close.

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.
