: An Orchestral Concert

(Cerddorfa Genedlaethol Cymru)
LISTENERS are most familiar with the name of Hughes as the arranger of Irish folk songs, and it is in that direction that he has done very valuable work for hia native country. At the early age of fourteen he was organist of St. Peter's Church, Belfast, but a few years later camo to London for a thorough course of study at the Royal College of Music. He was one of the enthusiastic spiritsiwho founded the Irish Folk Song Society, and for some time was part editor of its productions. His own actual researches have contributed very largely to our knowledge of Irish folk song, and his volumes of Irish Country Songs ' and ' Historical Songs and Ballads of Ireland' are fine examples of the way in which such things should bo arranged for modern concert use. Besides these and other books of Folk Song. he has given us original music, much of it humorous and even satirical, and he is, of course, well known as a kindly and enlightened critic and writer on musical subjects. Ho has visited the United States and borne his share in musical criticism there too.

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.
