The Vienna Boys Choir was founded over four centuries ago. Its tradition has remained unbroken, except for a period of six years after the War when the Hapsburg regime disappeared. Originally the Choir was attached to the Imperial Chapel, but now it has to support itself and therefore its repertoire includes secular music as well as religious music.
Among the many famous musicians who began as members of the Vienna Boys Choir the list is headed by Haydn and Schubert, and of the present day by the two eminent conductors, Felix Mottl and Clemens Krauss.
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.
