Where Messiah stands in the esteem of the musical public, Bach's Mass in B Minor stands in the esteem of musicians.
The Mass was written, and is always sung, to Latin words. It is not, however, a Roman Catholic Mass, or music of ritual, but a musical setting of language fundamental to all Christianity. It has five principal sections, known by the opening words of each: Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus and Agnus Dei. Strictly speaking, there is no division into Part I and Part II, but in most performances a break is made after the Gloria, and 'Part II' begins with the Credo. Each of the main divisions contains several movements - Choruses, Solos or Duets.
The work, in the present performance, is slightly shortened.
Kyrie eleison (Lord, have mercy upon us).
Christe eleison (Christ, have mercy upon us). Duet, Soprano and Contralto.
Kyrie eleison (Lord, have mercy upon us). Chorus.

Qui tollis peccata mundi (Thou that takest away the sins of the world). Chorus.
Qui sedes ad dexteram Patris, miserere nobis
(Thou that sittest at the right hand of the Father, have mercy upon us). Contralto Solo.

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.
