: MASS AT COCKCROW

Missa in Gallicantu
The music of a Christmas Mass c. 1555 with the Sarum plainsongs and John Shepherd 's
Te Deum and Missa Cantate IAN PARTRIDGE (tenor) MICHAEL RIPPON (bass) SCUOLA DI CHIESA
Conductor, JOHN HOBAN
Introduced by BRUNO TURNER
Liturgical dramas like The Play of Herod were the source of our theatre, but there has always been a dramatic element in Roman Catholic ritual, though this is lost in concert performances of the Mass. Bruno Turner has reconstructed the First Mass of Christmas as it would have been sung in Magdalen College Chapel, Oxford, where John Shepherd was Master of the Choristers from 1542-1556. Besides Shepherd's six-part choral Te Deum and Mass we shall hear, in their proper sequence, the Sarum plainsongs and Shepherd's two-voice setting of the Lesson. Thus restored by scholarship, the whole work matches the elaborate splendour of the medieval cathedrals. BASIL LAM

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.
