Overture, The Two Sisters
Cyril Bradley Rootham
Dr. Cyril Rootham, of St. John's College, Cambridge, wrote in 1922 an opera on the subject of the Two Sisters of Dinoire, the famous old Scotch Ballad on a text by Marjorie Fausset. It was performed in Cambridge in the same year. The tune to which the ballad is traditionally sung figures prominently as a theme in the opera. This is the overture which is frequently played as a concert-room piece and is made up in the customary way of themes from the opera.
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.
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.
