Flos Campi is a work that fully represents Vaughan Williams'sliighly individual style. It was first performed at Queen's Hall in 1925, and four years later at Geneva in the International Festival for Contemporary Music. Each of the six sections into which the work is divided is prefaced by a quotation from the ' Song of Solomon', ', indicating the mood of the music. There are no words sung ; the voices of the choir are used as part of the instrumentation and are made to sing or hum with closed lips on vowel sounds only.

: A SYMPHONY CONCERT

The BBC Midland Orchestra
Leader, Alfred Cave
Conducted by Leslie Heward
In Delius's ' A Village Romeo and Juliet' Sali and Viedi are the Romeo and Juliet who have suffered in their love for each other from the bitter enmity of their parents. They meet again after a cruel separation, and, determined to have one day of pleasure together, they go to a neighbouring fair, happy in each other's company. There they are recognised and worried by importunate questions. Anxious to be fully alone, they leave the fair and walk to the Paradise Garden, which is an inn, formerly the manor house of a ruined country estate. The lovely music describes their walk, idyllic, but saturated with a sense of impending tragedy.

The ' Romeo and Juliet' overture, one of Tchaikovsky's first important compositions, was written in the early eighteen-seventies at a period when the composer was in close touch with the leaders of the ' nationalist' group in St. Petersburg, particularly with Balakirev, Rimsky-Korsakov, and the art critic Stassov. The subject of the overture was actually suggested to the composer by Stassov, who had married into an English family and was a passionate admirer of English literature in general, and Shakespeare in particular.

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.
