Strings of the Philharmonia Orchestra
(Leader. Max Salpeter )
Conducted by Walter Goehr
This is the first of three weekly programmes in which all Purcell's Fantasias (including the two In Nomines) will be played by a string orchestra in a version prepared from the original manuscripts by Walter Goehr in collaboration with Michael Tippett. The Fantasias, written when Purcell was twenty-one (and first published in 1927. in an edition by André Mangeot and Peter Warlock ), are generally believed to have been designed for a consort of viols, and it is probable that in the seventeenth, century such music was often performed with more than one player to a part. Later in the year it is hoped to broadcast the Fantasias in performances by solo strings. Harold Rutland

Although Isaak (c. 1450-1517) spent most of his hfe in Florence and Innsbruck it was his link with the cty of Constance that was commemorated in the title of the Choralis Constantinus , published several years after his death. This great collection of liturgical music was completed and ieen through the press by the composer's colleague and pupil Ludw:g Senft. Isaak's monumental work, which comprises music for Saints' Days, Feasts, and Sundays throughout the year, is the most comprehensive of its kind between the settings of Leonin in the twelfth century and those of Byrd in the sixteenth.

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.
