' Between the Testaments '
The Rev. A. C. DEANE (Canon of Windsor, and Chaplain to H.M. the King)
Few people realise that there is an interval of about 400 years between Malachi, the last book of the Old Testament, and St Matthew , the first book of the New. This period has a considerable literature that is comparatively little known to the general reader, and Canon Deane is to talk about it this afternoon.

THE STRATTON
STRING QUARTET:

SARAH FISCHER (soprano)
QUARTET
Quartet in E flat, Op. 127..
Beethoven I. Maestoso , Allegro ; 2. Adagio, ma non troppo, e molto cantabile ; 3. Scherzando vivace ; 4. Finale
Despite the fact that Beethoven's last five string quartets are now over a hundred years old, they still remain today one of the supreme achievements in musical history.
The Quartet in E flat, Op. 127, was commissioned by Prince Galitzin-to whom it is dedicated-in 1822. But Beethoven was entirely occupied with his Ninth Symphony and was unable to begin work on the quartet until 1824 when staying among the pine woods of Baden. ' In it we find ', says Vincent d'Indy, 'the crowning expression of that love of nature of which he gave such wonderful evidence in the course of his career '.
In form this Quartet in E flat is designed on bold and highly-developed lines.
The slow movement which is a set of five magnificent variations on a broad and deeply expressive theme. achieves a grandeur of utterance that is only to be equalled elsewhere in the composer's own music.

Sonatina in D, Op. 137, No. I Schubert
Schubert was nineteen when he wrote three Sonatinas for violin and piano. He had written much chamber music already, but mostly for strings alone. In this year, 1816, he appeared to have become taken up with the possibilities of the pianoforte in combination with other instruments, and for the next year or two, most of his chamber music compositions are scored to include a pianoforte. The sonatinas are included among his early attempts in this form.
Strauss has himself explained, in a highly interesting letter, his methods of song writing. ' For some time,' he wrote, ' I will have no impulse to compose at all. Then one evening I will be turning the leaves of a volume of poetry and a poem will strike my eye. I read it through ; it agrees with the mood I am in ; and at once the appropriate music is fitted to it. I am in a musical frame of mind, and all . want is the right poetic vessel into which to pour my ideas. If good luck throws this in my way, a satisfactory song results '.
But if, he added, the poem was not the right one, or he was not in the mood, then things worked out very differently and, hard as he might try, the result was never satisfactory.

: The Week's Good Cause

An Appeal on behalf of The British Seamen's Orphan Boys' Home, Brixham, by the Chaplain, The Rev. C. A. Viner

The British Seamen's Orphan Boys' Home was founded nearly eighty years ago for the benefit of the orphan sons of seafaring men of the Western Counties ; but boys are now received from any part of the kingdom. It is not necessary for both parents to be dead for boys to be eligible, but they must be sons of seamen from the Navy, Merchant Service or Fishing Fleets. They are taken from the age of seven, and are housed, clothed, fed, and educated until they are fourteen. Then everything is done to get those of them who are fit for service at sea into the Navy or Merchant Service and to get jobs for the others.
The boys - many of them drifting in destitute and uncared for - have their own beds in a dormitory overlooking the sea. They have a gymnasium and a swimming pool. They are trained in knotting and splicing, in rope and wire, and the work of the boat's crew afloat.
Here, surely, in this Home with its walls actually built on the rocks that stand in the waters of Torbay, is a permanent and practical recognition of the service and sacrifice of sailors.
The Home does not receive Government aid, and is entirely supported by donations.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged and should be addressed to [address removed]

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.
