DUNSTABLE, outstanding as his work is in the evolution of English song, docs not directly affect the present series ; even his much discussed 0 Rosa bella. written in Italian as it is, is outside our present scheme. Ho earned our homage mainly by transferring the artistic style of song writing with instrumental accompaniment (which arose in Florence after 1300) to the music of the Church, and thus became creator of paraphrased church-song (hymns, motets, anthems, etc.).
There is no Rose (fifteenth-century popular carol).
-Carols, which began in England as popular songs of great beauty, dealing devotionally with the Nativity, Incarnation, and (in greater number) with the Annunciation, were transformed by the Reformation into hymns for special occasions ; they have never emerged from that yoke of formalism. In the early Tudor school, Fayrfax was accounted the prime musician of the nation. He, with Cornyshe, headed a small band of musicians who consolidated the musical developments of the fifteenth century in practically all its branches; and later, with the wholohearted patronage of Henry VIII , extended their activities, prefacing the glorious outburst of secular music of the Elizabethan era. Henry VIII , intended for the Church, was trained in music, and was keenly interested in it ; contemporary writers make much of his skill as a composer, especially of songs ; there are thirty-three attributed to him in one MS. alone.

THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section E)
Conducted by VICTOR HELY-HUTCHINSON
Prelude ; Sarabande ; Gavotte ; Air ;
Rigaudon HOLBERG , in whose honour this Suite is named, although a Norwegian by birth, did most of his important literary and dramatic, work for Denmark, and is regarded as the real founder of Danish literature. When he arrived there in the early years of the eighteenth century,
Danish could hardly be called a written language at all. That one man raised the language to a place of . front-rank importance in the world's literature is an achievement for which we have far to seek if we would find a parallel. Grieg's
Suite has no other relation to Holberg than that of the composer's veneration, and the fact that it is written in the old-fashioned stvle. The first movement is a Prelude ; a very robust semi-quaver figure persists throughout, against which there is now a heavy-footed theme in the basses and anon a gracious tune in the woodwinds and violins The second movement is a Sarabande, in which the melody, in spite of its old-fashioned guise, is eminently typical of Grieg and Norway A Gavotte follows, beginning with the same three notes as the Sarabande, in different rhythm ; there is a Musette, after which the Gavotte returns. The fourth movement has an air of solemn, even religious, import, and a very merry and boisterous Rigaudon brings the Suite to an end in the best of spirits.

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.
