Conductor, Sir Hugh S. Roberton
Annie Tait (contralto)
Alexander McKay (tenor) from the St. Andrew's Hall, Glasgow
No connoisseur of the singing of madrigals, part songs, and folk songs needs to be told about the Glasgow Orpheus Choir, which under its conductor and founder. Sir Hugh Roberton , has earned a reputation for itself far beyond the borders of Scotland. Early in the century Sir Hugh began his career as trainer of a church choir, and soon formed the small body of singers which became the nucleus of the Orpheus Choir. Many of the arrangements used are by Sir Hugh himself.

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.
