A Recital by LAURENCE CROSTHWAITE
Relayed from
St. Michael's College, Tenbury
St. Michael's College, Tenbury, was established by Sir Frederick Ouselev , Bart., who made it his home from 1856 until his death in 1889. It offers a practical training in church music. Among its objects is the maintenance of a choir to set a high standard in the rendering of the services. Many old boys are precentors and organists. Laurence Crosthwaite , who has broadcast before, was appointed organist and choirmaster of the College in 1931. He had previously been Director of Music at Bishop Cotton School, Simla. Under his direction St. Michael's College hoys have given successful performances of Constant Lambert's Rio Grande, Purcell's Dido and Æneas, and Mozart's opera, The Magic Flute.
The two composers whose works he is to play tonight are both West Midlanders. Herbert Sumsion is organist and choirmaster of Gloucester Cathedral. Herbert Howells was born in Gloucestershire and was a pupil of Sir Herbert Brewer before going to the Royal College of Music.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

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.
