A Recital relayed from Carlisle
Dr. F. W. WADELY, Organist
IN HIS EARLY YEARS Elgar held the post of organist, succeeding his father, at
St. George's Church, Worcester. He had not until recently, however, written anything of importance for the organ beyond one Sonata. This, the first, was composed, as many of Elgar's works have been, for an occasion-the visit of some American musicians to Worcester Cathedral in July, 1898. The second is, naturally, a work of much greater maturity. Some of its .material has been drawn from another recent work, 'The Severn Suite '. The work is characteristic of Elgar at his most vivacious, and, being not too technically difficult to organists of average accomplishment, is a welcome addition to the repertory of British recital 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.

Welcome to BBC Genome
