: Music from Dunkeld Cathedral

and matters of Historic interest concerning the building
Notes by the Minister of the Church, the Rev. JAMES IRWIN
THE BBC
SCOTTISH SINGERS
THE BBC
SCOTTISH ORCHESTRA
Conducted by IAN WHYTE
It has become the pleasing habit in Scotland to take an orchestra and singers to famous cathedrals, whether still complete or in ruin, and make appropriate music within their sacred precincts. The last visit was to the Abbey of Melrose in connection with the commemoration of the octo-centenary of its foundation.
This afternoon the broadcast comes from the ruined part of Dunkeld Cathedral, within audible reach of the waters of Tay. The programme will include old religious music by Douglas, taken from the Dunkeld manuscripts.
Dunkeld has at least a thousand years of history indissolubly linked with that of Scotland itself, and it is possible, even likely, that a primitive church was built on or near the present site of the Cathedral about the time of St. Columba.
, Certainly the religious centre was moved from Iona to Dunkeld about the end of the eighth century owing to the ravages of the Vikings. One of the most famous of its abbots was Adamnan, biographer of St. Columba.
The Culdee monastery or church of Dunkeld was elevated to the status of cathedral by David I. Damage to the fabric begun in Reformation times was aggravated by an English army and the civil war of the seventeenth century completed the ruin.

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.
