Dr. Stanton's programme is drawn chiefly from composers between 1600 and 1750. Alexander Scarlatti , father of Domenico and an important figure in the history of opera, was a contemporary of Purcell. Franz Tunder was organist at Lubeck, and was succeeded in this post by Buxtehude, who (it is suggested) married Tunder's daughter in the hope of ensuring Tunder's position for himself. Michael Richard de la Lande, a distinguished French composer, was also a violin player and organist. He was Master of Chamber Music to Louis XIV.
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.
