THE BIRMINGHAM CATHOLIC CHOIR
Conducted by the Rev. ROBERT EATON
MICHAEL MULLINAR (Accompanist)
THE Birmingham Catholic Choir cameijinto being in the summer of 1923, when tho Catholic
Congress was held in the City. A feature of the Congress was a concert given in the presence of Cardinal Bourne, most of the English Catholic Bishops, and an audience of over two thousand people. It is said that over a thousand more were turned away at the doors. It was felt that the choir, which had been hastily got together for the occasion, should not be allowed to disband. The Choir became a permanent institution when, in the following December, it gave its first concert at the Town Hall. Its average strength is about one hundred singers.
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.
