The Occasional Overture and the Occasional Oratorio were composed to celebrate the fact that the Young Pretender and his Highlanders failed to reach London during the rising of 1745. Handel's position in the musical world of that day was almost parallel with that of the Poet Laureate ; on all occasions of public rejoicing or mourning he was expected to compose appropriate music.
The Overture is on a big scale, in accordance with the traditions of Handel's period, and is cast in four movements. The first is slow and solemn, with one little, stately tune running throughout. Without a break, the second brisk movement follows, a fugue on one short, concise subject. The third movement is a little slow air, serving as a prelude to the march that is the fourth movement.
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.
