This is the first of three programmes of madrigals recorded by the choir and soloists of the Italian Swiss Radio in their studio at Lugano. The choir, which will be heard in the last programme, was founded in 1937 by Edwin Lohrer , on the pattern of the Concerto Italiano ' of the Renaissance; it was formed with a view to reproducmg the original style of performance at sixteenth- and seventeenth-century music, especially that of Monteverdi. The works have been edited by Dr. Lohrer, and these three performances were given under his artistic direction.

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.
