For the last fortnight rhe services in Westminster Abbey have been sung, in the absence of the regular choir, by the choir that broadcasts today. The trebles are parish church choirboys selected from those who have attended the instructional courses of the Royal School of Church Music, and the altos, tenors, and basses are senior boys of school choirs.
Edred Wright was a chorister in Westminster Abbey under the late Sir Sydney Nicholson, who founded the Royal School of Church Music in 1927. He is choirmaster of St. Nicholas' College, Canterbury, and a special commissioner of the Royal School of Church Music.

: MOZART

Quartet in G minor (K.478) played by the Robert Masters Piano Quartet:
Robert Masters (violin) Nannie Jamieson (viola)
Muriel Taylor (cello)
Kinloch Anderson (piano)
This is the first of Mozart's two piano Quartets and the first example of the form that is familiar to us today from the works of Schumann, Brahms, and Dvorak. Written in Mozart's ' ‘ tragic ’ key of G minor, it compares in stature with his two other great works in this key. the fortieth symphony and the string quintet. The first movement is strenuous in mood and in many ways foreshadows Beethoven; the serene Andante, like many of Mozart's peaceful slow movements, has a deep undercurrent of sadness; but the finale turns to the major key to provide us with a happy ending. Deryck Cooke

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.
