(First Performance)
GUSTAV HOLST has for many years been strongly' influenced by Eastern lore; he has made a study of Sanskrit, so that he may translate for himself passages from old writings which appeal to him. In 1907 and 1908 ho made a great impression on the musical world with two sets of Vedic hymns, which were recognized at onco as profoundly sincere translations into Western music of a beautiful side of Eastern mysticism. The first series, consisting of nine hymns, which appeared in 1907, as Op. 24, is for solo voice; the other, Op. 26, is a set of choral hymns. In all of them. the mysticism which underlies the age-old words is embodied in Hoist's music without a trace of the superficial, pseudo-Eastern devices by which less sincere composers gain their effects, and the means he employs are of the simplest; the composer has clearly won for himself a true affinity of spirit with the Eastern writers of long ago.

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.
