The title refers to St. Paul's Girls' School, Hammersmith, where the Composer has for some years been the Director of Music. He wrote the Suite for the girls' Orchestra there. There are four Movements in it. The FIRST is a capering Jig.
The SECOND is called an Ostinato, because one bit of time persists all the way through. The THIRD piece is an Intermezzo. The FINALE is built on an old English dance-tune called The Dargason. The Composer has neatly woven with this another old melody - that of the song Green Sleeves, which Shakespeare mentions in The Merry Wives of Windsor.
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.
