The BBC Northern
Ireland Chorus
Isobel Baillie (soprano)
Stanley Pope (baritone)
Chorus of Unseen Angels
Oratorio and cantata on Sunday evenings always meet widespread approval in Northern Ireland, and tonight's programme is certain to have its tull quota of listeners.
Neither Berlioz's The Childhood of Christ nor Vaughan William 's Dona Nobis Pacem is frequently performed, and they may be strange works to some Northern Ireland listeners. The former may go far to dispel the popular belief that all Berlioz's work is noisy ; economy and simplicity are outstanding characteristics of these excerpts from The Childhood of Christ. The Vaughan Williams work has been rightly described as one of the most valuable contributions to the modem English choral repertoire.
Neither of the soloists needs to be commended to Northern Ireland listeners ; both have their own wide publics in the Province and can always be sure of a welcome.

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.
