Ode on the Morning of Christ's Nativity (Poem by John Milton) ...... Rootham
(Conducted by the Composer)

For a good many years Dr. Cyril Rootham has been closely identified with the music of Cambridge. As Organist and Director of the Music at St. John's, conductor of the University Musical Society and University lecturer in music, he has done more than it would be easy to reckon to spread an enlightened enthusiasm for all that is best, both in old and new music.

But besides ail the hard work and activity which these engrossing tasks entail, he has found time to compose a good deal of music of his own, distinguished by a very original outlook and a finely poetic quality of thought. Those who listen to this ode with the poem before them will have no difficulty in following it, and the best guidance which a mere paragraph can offer is to call attention to two principal themes, which appear in varied forms. One is first heard to the words (boys' voices) 'Who shall ascend to the holy place?' along with the solo 'Join thy voice unto the angel quire.' The second appears at the point 'At last surrounds their sight.' Another theme which is heard more than once is a carol from the Isle of Man: the orchestral basses play it first as accompaniment to the choir, as they sing 'It was the winter wild.'

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.
