A Cantata arranged from the Airs of Henry Purcell by W. G. Whittp. ker. The Passing of the Moon ; The Search ; The Woodland Dark ; The Questioning of the Ocean ; The Answer of the Ocern ; The Close of the Day; The Moon Reappears
IN these days of our re-discovery of Henry
Purcell (1658-95) it should be unnecessary to remind anyone that. according to all the leading writers from Purcell's own days onwards, most of his work is among the freshest, most vital music ever written.
Nowhere is that more certainly so than in the great mass of dramatic music which he wrote. Nearly all this consists of more scattered items, incidental songs and so on. for plays characteristic of the time. Seven such songs have been collected into the form of a Cantata, by Dr. Whittaker. new words being provided by Charles Williams , in place of the verse which has always been a serious obstacle to the performance of this music with its original text.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
