At The Organ of The Ritz Theatre,
It has been generally held that ' Finlandia,' one of the two most popular of the shorter works of Sibelius, is based upon the folk melodies of Finland, and that it actually contains examples of these melodies. That is not so, however, though Sibelius has always been immensely influenced by his environment. Sibelius may well be described as the music laureate of his country, and he has always been ready to contribute to its pageants and festivities. This work, therefore, was written as one number of seven to accompany a series of tableaux illustrating episodes taken from Finnish mythology. ' Finlandia' appears to have been the only one of the seven that has survived.

: An Organ and Choral Recital

Relayed from
St. Michael's College, Tenbury
Organist and Choirmaster,
The programme introduced by The
Warden (The Rev. E. H. SWANN )
St. Michael's College was founded by the late Rev. Sir Frederick Ouseley , Bart, sometime Professor of Music at Oxford University and Precentor and Canon of Hereford Cathedral. He intended it to be a model choir school as well as a preparatory school in the secular sense. Of the fifty boarders, sixteen sing in the Choir as choristers or probationers ; and these are all taught some musical instrument free.
Many old boys have obtained musical positions in the Church of England.
The present organist,
Laurence Crosthwaite , formerly Director of Music at the Bishop Cotton School, Simla, was appointed nearly four years ago. Works recently performed by the College under his direction include Purcell's ' Dido and Æneas' and Constant Lambert's ' Rio Grande '.
Among the rarities in the College music library is a book containing a great quantity of Elizabethan music in organ score of the period.

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.
