: BBC Proms 2007

Presented live from the Royal Albert Hall ,
London, by Sarah Walker. Andre Campra was a leading musical figure at the French court in the early 18th century. His Requiem is a quietly intense setting - a gentle precursor of the later settings by Faure and Durufle. The second half of this concert promises to match in exuberance the austerity of the first half. Rameau's operas contain some of the most spirited dance music of the 18th century. Earlier this year, when John Eliot Gardiner 's professional forces first encountered the Buskaid Soweto String Ensemble as well as dancers from both South Africa and France, the critic of Le Monde wrote that they "wove a poetic fantasy that was beyond compare." Katharine Fuge (soprano), Julia Doyle (soprano), Anders Dahlin , Marc Molomot and Nicholas Mulroy (tenor), Lawrence Wallington and Matthew Brook (basses), Buskaid Soweto String Ensemble and Dance for All, director Rosemary Nalden , Monteverdi Choir, English Baroque Soloists, Compagnie Roussat-Loubek, conductor John Eliot Gardiner Campra Messe de Requiem

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.
