MARGARET BALFOUR (Cotitralto)
THE B.B.C. ORCHESTRA
(Section C)
(Led by Laurance Turner )
Conducted by JOSEPH LEWIS
(First Performance)
Here is an addition to the engaging and very popular orchestral suites of Eric Coates. Having already made the journey from ' Meadow to Mayfair ' he is for the moment staying in the city, doubtless for the purpose of giving us his impressions. London has been recorded in terms of music by many musical Londoners, ranging from Elgar and Vaughan Williams at one end to the original composer of 'Who'll buy my lavender?' at the other. Somewhere between these two extremes this suite will occupy its niche, its exact position being on the peak of popularity.
This suite is drawn from the incidental music which Gounod wrote in 1873 for the play of Jeanne d'Arc, written by Jules Barbier. It was a subject congenial to him, for at this date Gounod had practically abandoned the stage for the church, and was writing only music with a religious basis. How far his residence in England, from 1870 to 187.5, affected his outlook is not clear, but his deflection from opera dates roughly from that period. In later life he became a firm religious mystic, and composed a Mass to Joan of Are, having declared his intention (certainly not carried out) of composing it on his knees in the Cathedral of Rheims on the very stone on which Joan knelt at the coronation of the king, Charles VII. Ihe Mass was first performed in Rheims Cathedral in 1887.

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.
