Concluding programme of the West Sussex
Choral Competition
Relayed from the Payilion, Bognor
With the exception of the Second Item, all the works are by composers who are connected with Sussex
THIS is an early and rarely played work of its well-known composer. The tune is a familiar one, and appears after a short introduction that concludes with a Cadenza-like passage on the solo instruments. The Variations (ten in number) are well contrasted, and the attentive ear should find little difficulty in following the course of the melody.
THIS Rhapsody was inspired by a view of Selsey Bill in the sunlight on a bright autumn morning. The music is expressive of the gently undulating sea, while underneath is heard the tolling of the bells of the original Cathedral of Chichester, now beneath the waves.
THIS was written for the Worcester Festival, and is dedioated to Sir Ivor Atkins. Although original in design, it betrays a certain influence of Parry-notably in its moments of intense poignancy. Its composer is Music Master at Lancing College.


Conductor: Norman F. Demuth
Cello: Audrey Piggott
Unknown: Selsey Bill
Unknown: Sir Ivor Atkins.

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.
