: The Foundations of Music

ENGLISH CHURCH MUSIC
THE WIRELESS SINGERS
Conductor, STANFORD ROBINSON
Anthems :
WILLIAM BYRD is undoubtedly the most imposing English musician until
Henry Purcell comes upon the scene over 100 years later. He was born in 1543 and lived to the age of 80. It has been said that he was a. pupil of Tallis, but however that may be, Tallis and Byrd were together during the time of their appointments as Gentlemen of the Chapel Royal, where they shared the duties of organist. It is interesting to note that these two distinguished musicians were granted a monopoly under'a patent by Queen Elizabeth to print and sell music and music paper. This was doubtless a royal way of remunerating two such valuable members of her household beyond their meagre wages without expense to herself. The facts of Byrd's life have not come down to us in very great detail, but we know that he was a kindly and much respected gentleman with an estate in Essex, and we know further that he was engaged in a good deal of peppery and rather trivial litigation in connection with this estate for a matter of 20 years or so. His life, however, appears to have been in general uneventful and his monument is in the profoundly beautiful work that this father of English music has bequeathed to us.
Thomas Weelkes, though a much younger man, died in the same year as Byrd. There is no record that he was attached to the Chapel Royal though he once described himself as being so. He was, however, organist of Winchester College, took his degree at New College, Oxford, and later became organist of Chichester Cathedral. He, too, was one of the pillars of early English church music.'

: THE B.B.C. THEATRE ORCHESTRA

(Led by MONTAGUE BREARLEY )
Conducted by S. KNEALE KELLEY
MAVIS BENNETT (Soprano)
GOUNOD'S Philemon and Baucis was originally composed as a one Act opera for the theatre at Baden; it was later extended to three Acts and performed in Paris in 1860. The legend, of course, is a simple but charming one. Unfortunately, however, it does not lend itself particularly well to dramatic conception, and in this case the task appears to have been too much for the somewhat incompetent librettist. Gounod, however, contrived to deck the story with some very engaging music and excerpts from the opera are often heard in the concert-room.

: 'LIFE AMONG NATIVE TRIBES' —VI

Mr. J. W. C. DOUGALL : 'The Changing World in Africa '
BRITAIN touches the native life of Africa at many points: as administrator, educator, missionary, scientist and trader. Representatives of all these functions have spoken in this series of particular tribes from the angle of their knowledge and qualifications, and these talks have brought home to the citizens of this country the complexity of the problems involved in Colonial administration in Africa. If one fact has emerged more than another, it is the urgency of the need for the best in all departments of knowledge and experience to be applied to the task of ruling.
Mr. Dougall, who has extensive knowledge of African conditions, summarises the previous talks in this series, and brings it to a close with a picture of the deep changes in religion, education and general conditions of life now coining over the African scene.

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.
