Leader, Norman Rouse
Conductor, Maurice Miles from the Pump Room, Bath The history of the Bath Pump
Room Orchestra goes back for some considerable time: there is a record of a ' band of musik ', consisting of five players, in 1671. This orchestra performed in what is now the Orange Grove, under a large tree. In 1704 some of the physicians of Bath requested Beau Nash to allow the band to play in the Pump Room. Although the music drew large attendances, the subscriptions of the patrons were sometimes insufficient, and in 1770 a notice appeared in the Bath papers stating that the music had ceased. However, the expenses were defrayed, and the music restored. In 1783 another notice was issued; the Council decided that a book should be put up at the Pump Room for extra subscriptions, and by this means the music was again restored.
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.
