' Crefydd a Chredo '—I
(A Talk in Welsh)

: A Concert by West Country Artists

ANN ROME (contralto)
LOIS TURNER (pianoforte)
This fine ballad was written by Brahms the year before he died, and is one of a set of six pieces which represent his genius as a writer for the keyboard at its highest. The middle section is particularly noteworthy for its wealth of key-colour. William' Murdoch in his book on the composer draws attention to the fact that this section is in the key of B major, of which Brahms was particularly fond : ' I should think ', says Mr. Murdoch, ' he enjoyed writing in it more than in any other, and he never used it to greater purpose than here. A feeling of warmth and lusciousness is produced, an atmosphere of repose'.


Contralto: Ann Rome
Tenor: Howard Wintle
Pianoforte: Lois Turner

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
