*Yet there are trials (hard and troublesome, may be)
Very useful unto men ;
All saints have gone through many a trouble—many a harrowing care
Gone through with gain.
Some meet their heaviest trials at the first....
Some at the ending of the way ... Some too are visited, it seems, through al! their lives.
Thomas a Kempis (Imitation of Christ)
This work is a reflection on a simple yet tragic life, the clue to which lies in the final sentence of the extract above; hence there is no main climax, but rather a series. It is built almost entirely on two motives (1) three rising notes, depicting hope, which is constantly dashed by the ' harrowing cares '
! typified by (2) a hammering syncopated rhythm. Twice during the wcrkaftei a rhythmic climax there is a fresh subject descriptive of despair. At the end the introduction reappears and dies away with final reference to (i) on celesta and harp and (2) on drums.
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.
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.
