: 'PARIS AFTER EIGHT YEARS IN THE ANTIPODES'

by F. L. W. Wood
Until he visited Paris again the other day the speaker had not been there for eight years. Away in New Zealand, he had read and heard about the change of things in Europe -the world-wide depression, the Italian-Abyssinian crisis, the Spanish Civil War. How had these things affected Europe-Paris in particular? In this talk he will give a critical survey of Paris and her people ; the customs and thoughts of her people. Have they changed? Is the change apparent or deep-hidden? Under the familiar spirit of France, is there to be seen by the discerning a changed people wrestling with the problems and anxieties of the modern world?

Osculetur me oscula oris sui
Trahe me post te
Nigra sum, sed formosa
Vineam meam non custodivi
Si ignoras te, 0 pulchra inter mulieres
Pulchrae sunt genae tuae Fasciculus myrrhae
Ecce tu pulcher es, dilecte mi
Giovanni Palestrina (1525-1594) was without doubt the most celebrated musician of his age. This period has often been called the 'Golden Age', for not only in Italy was there a great creative movement in music, but in other European countries, including England, where Byrd, Gibbons, Morley, and Tallis were making history. Palestrina wrote neady one hundred masses and twice that number of motets.
' Palestrina ', says
Sir Hubert Parry , ' afforded the most perfect examples of pure choral style. In his work the development of many centuries is summed up ; and practically he stands almost alone in scope and uniform perfection of artistic resourcefulness ... With him all is beauty of motion and tone ; expression of a passionate kind is never attempted. The music flows in crystalline and pellucid purity, mysterious and subjective, the very ideal of purely devotional art.'
Further programmes in this series will be broadcast on Wednesday (Regional, 6.40), Thursday (Regional,
7.30), Friday (National, 9.50), and Saturday (Regional, 6.0).

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.
