From Coventry Cathedral
Despite the fact that Brahms's four symphonies differ from each other both in emotional impulse and in various details of design, they arc aesthetically of equal importance and belong to a symphonic style that may be described as romantic, though cast in a classical mould. The D major Symphony, for instance, is as lyrical and romantic in expression as any contemporary German music of the time.
If the Symphony No. I in C minor was a great success on its first appearance, the Symphony No. 2 in D with its happier and more idyllic feelings was an even greater one. Although conceived on just as big a scale as the C minor Symphony, the texture of the music is actually very much clearer, the melodies more cantabile in character, and the whole spirit of the music brighter-it has been called Brahms's ' Pastoral ' Symphony.
The Friends of Coventry Cathedral have organised a three days' Festival of the Arts. Features of it arc concerts, including serenading outside the West Porch on the evening of the opening day ; Choral Eucharist in the Cathedral ; organ recitals ; a play by the Coventry Repertory Company ; a Children's Festival with massed singing; a lantern lecture on Westminster Abbey, and exhibitions of antiquities, books, and pictures in the Cathedral Tower. the Crypt, and the King James Room in Palace Yard. The Choir for this evening's concert will be drawn from various organisations in Coventry, Stratford-upon-Avon, and Warwick.

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.
