The Tudor Singers were founded by their present conductor in 1923 ; their repertoire includes many of the finest examples by the great figures of the sixteenth century. They toured Holland in 1932, and have broadcast from London, Paris, and Hilversum. The Madrigal Summer School is under the direction of Cuthbert Bates for the third time, and the Tudor Singers act as coaches and demonstrators.
This dance band was formed about ten years ago, and is well-known in South Wales at hunt, golf, and hospital balls. Last year the band was successful in winning the Championship of West Wales (held at Swansea), the Championship of South Wales and Monmouthshire (held at Newport), and the Championship of Wales (held at Llanelly). The alto saxophone player, Elwyn Davies , won the Gold Medal awarded to the best saxophone player. He is blind and is a pupil of the Swansea and South Wales Blind Institution. The trombonist, Roy Allan , won the three Gold Medals awarded to the best trombonist at the same contest. Most of the orchestrations are arranged by the pianist, Ralph Jubb.
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.
