Bach's Choral Preludes
Played by Dr. W. G. Alcock
Relayed from St. Margaret's, Westminster
Jesus Christus, unser Heiland, der von uns
(Jesus Christ, our Saviour) (Canto fermo in Pedal)
Jesus Christus, Unser Heiland, der von uns
Valet will ich dir genes (I give thee now farewell) Valet will ich dir geben
Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier (Dearest Jesu, we are here)
Bachwas a magnificent organ player, the greatest organ player in the opinion of those who heard him that ever lived, and tliere has been found no reason to dispute that that opinion holds for all time. As a child lie was astonishing his elders, ae a young man he held his hearers spellbound with his genius for improvisation, and his organ compositions bear witness to his unapproached supremacy as a writer for the organ. The base upon which he built his art and developed his powers as organ composer and player was the German Choral, and of all his compositions for the organ the most consistently beautiful and successful are the Choral Preludes. He was writing these throughout his life. There are considerably over a hundred of them, those which Bach at the end of his life put together into five collections alone numbering ninety. The earliest of these date from before his Cothen days, and the last, the one with which this series is to conclude, Wenn wir in hochsten Nothein schi, was dedicated to his son-in-law by the blind and stricken genius on his deathbed.

: 'THE DISINTEGRATION OF THE MODERN WORLD ORDER '—IV

Professor ARNOLD J. TOYNBEE : 'Britain's.
Neighbours-Germany and France '
GERMANY and France stand for two sharply opposed traditions in economics as in politics. Germany has applied all her genius for large-scale organization to industrial production. France has never adopted industrialism on the same scale, but remains essentially the land of small peasant proprietors in agriculture and small units in commerce and industry.

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.
