6.37 app. Serenade, for two violins and viola
6.55 app. Missa Brevis
(First performance in England)
The Serenade represents a typically Hungarian aspect of Kodaly s art-rhapsodic, deliberately rough-hewn, or naive. Another, more severe, aspect of his art is represented by the unaccompanied Motet Jetus and the Traders, originally set by the composer to English words, and also by his recent Missa Brevis. The style of this liturgical Mass is strictly tonal and Kodaly's power is revealed here in his ability to bring new life to the old forms

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

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.
