: A Concert by the Bristol

University Choir and Orchestra
Relayed from
The Colston Hall , Bristol
ARTHUR WARRELL The Hundredth Psalm, by Vaughan Williams , for Chorus and Orchestra, will be conducted by the composer. It is a most effective setting of the well-known words and at the end the Old Hundredth Psalm tune is introduced with fine effect.
A Lyke-Wake Dirge for double chorus by Arthur Warrell was first performed by the Cambridge University Musical Society three years ago under the direction of the composer. The words are very old, and though for the most part Christian, they show definite traces of Pagan influence. Patrick Hadley 's Symphonic Ballad
The Trees so high was included in the B B C concerts of British music broadcast from the Queen's Hall last year. In the last movement (the only one to be performed at the concert) a baritone soloist and chorus are used with the orchestra. The work is based on a folk song, and is one of the most notable examples of modern British composition. The composer is on the teaching staff of the Royal College of Music. (Soloist, LESLIE BENNETT> ) Reginald Redman 's setting of Sheba's
Captain is just right for the pitcuresque words (Richard D'Auxonne ) ; the composer will conduct.

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.
