Roy Henderson (baritone)
The Song of Momus to Mars Boyce
Roy Henderson was educated at
Nottingham High School and the Royal Academy of Music (where he distinguished himself as captain of the cricket team). For several years he was chorus master of the Nottingham Harmonic Society, which he trained for its concerts with the Halle Orchestra under Sir Hamilton Harty.
In 1932 he was elected a Fellow of the R.A.M. and in the same year became conductor of the Huddersfield Glee and Madrigal Society.
At the International Festival of Contemporary Music in Amsterdam in June, 1933, he sang the solo uart in Belshazzar's Feast.
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.
