Felix Alexandre Guilmant (1837-1911) was born at Boulogne. The son of an organist, he studied under his father and at the age of fifteen was appointed organist of St. Joseph, and at twenty choirmaster of St. Nicolas. In 1871 Guilmant became organist of the church of the Trinité, and later his name became widely known as one of the foremost virtuosos of the time-he visited England, America, and many of the leading European capitals. He taught at-the Paris Conservatoire and the Schola Cantorum, which he founded with Bordes and d'Indy. His organ compositions consist of two symphonies, eight sonatas, and twenty-five sets of pieces.
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.
