: MUSIC FOR ST. DAVID'S DAY

A Welsh Folk-Song
Rhapsody Idris Lewis
Sung by Margaret Rees (soprano)
Roderick Jones (baritone)
Cor Caerdydd (The Cardiff Singers)
(50 voices)
(Chorus-master, E. J. Richards ) with The BBC Orchestra
(Section C)
Led by Marie Wilson
Conducted by the Composer
The most interesting feature of the present programme is the first performance of a new ' Welsh Folk-Song Rhapsody' by Idris Lewis. Scored for a small orchestra, the work is designed on popular lines in the form of a non-stop chain of Welsh tunes, but not those that have become hackneyed. Idris Lewis has taken considerable trouble to base his Rhapsody on tunes that may be well known to keen Welsh music-lovers but comparatively unknown to the ordinary British listener. The following tunes are used in his Rhapsody in the following order: ' Dewch i'r Frwydr ' (Come to the Battle), ' Suo Gan ' (Lullaby), ' Pant Corlan yr Wyn ' (Lambs' Fold) for orchestra onty, ' Rhywun ' (Someone), ' Dacw 'Nghariad i lawr yn y Berllan' , ' Cyfri'r Geifr' (Counting the Goats), ' Migildi Magildi ', ' Gwcw Fach ' (Cuckoo Dear), ' Hobed o Hilion ' (Though Memory beckon), ' Machynlleth' for orchestra only, Hob y Deri Dando '.

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

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
