Mendelssohn's Hymn of Praise is a setting of the Fifty-fifth Psalm, planned as a choral symphony, though not quite in the manner adopted by Beethoven. Mendelssohn's idea was different. He appears to have been toying with a new construction, and to have sought to attain a kind of unity for the whole work by making use of a motto theme.
Mendelssohn chose for his motto a splendid example, an ancient church mode, the sole function of whose few noble notes was to climb the scale with slow dignity, but instead of allowing it to climb he altered the note values and rhythm and made it hop. The motto theme occurs frequently: it opens the first and second movements and closes the whole work. The Hymn of Praise is divided into two parts, the first part for orchestra and the second for chorus.

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.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
