(Section D)
(Led by LAURANCE TURNER )
Conducted by Sir GRANVILLE BANTOCK
Poem (No. 7), Queen Mab. -Holbrooke
Symphonic Dances from the Burlesque
Opera, The Tigers... Havergal Brian i. Gargoyles; 2. Wild Horsemen
THESE two Symphonic Dances are from
The Tigers, 'a burlesque opera with a Prologue and Three Acts. ' Gargoyles is one of the two Symphonic Dances which form the introduction to the Third Act. Here is the printed description of what takes place : ' By very imperceptible degrees the stage represents the tower of a cathedral surrounded by fantastic grinning gargoyles, whose visages vary, suggesting sometimes a less malicious grin or even an expression of kindness. This is but an illusion cast by the slowly enveloping light which is gradually showing up the complete outlines of the fantastic battalion. From the centre rises a gargoyle more fantastic than the rest.... He raises his hand to and signals to the gargoyles. One by one they join him until all the gargoyles have left their stations in the stonework, and with the griffin at their head the gargoyles commence their nightly and ghostly march.'
' Wild Horsemen ' forms the Second
Scene of the Prologue to the opera.
(The Prologue is taken up entirely by a Bank Holiday Carnival on Hampstead Heath.) The wild horsemen are suggested by the various rings of hobby-horses moving in opposite directions, whose colours, white and gold, flash in the gaudily coloured decorations and brilliant lights.

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.
