A description of the organ followed by A recital by L. A. Hamand from the Priory, Malvern
This organ, one of the finest in the Midlands, has four manuals and fifty-one speaking stops. The task of collecting the necessary funds for its rebuilding-close on £6,000 — was entrusted to Dr. Hamand, who met with such success that the whole of the money was collected within a year of the completion of the work. The organist of Malvern Priory owed much to the encouragement of Prebendary Harvey , who was his vicar at Hillingdon, near Uxbridge, and was a life-long friend of Sir Hubert Parry. Mr. Hamand took his doctorate at Oxford ; was on the staff of the London Academy of Music and went to Malvern from St. Anne's, Eastbourne. He is a water-colour artist and his pictures have been shown at the Royal Academy.
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.
