Symphony No. 4 (1946)
(Deliciae Basilienses ) played by the Beromunster Studio Orchestra
Conducted by Paul Sacher
(Recording made available by courtesy of Suddeutscher Rundfunk)
Honegger's Fourth Symphony was written for the twentieth anniversary of the foundation of rhe Basic Chamber Orchestra, and is dedicated to Paul Sacher. The composer says that he gave the work the sub-title 'Basle Delights ' partly because it contains references to old popular songs of the town and partly for personal reasons. There are three movements.

The Geraint Jones Singers and Orchestra
(Leader, Reginald Morley)
Conductor, Geraint Jones
(who also plays the harpsichord)
These three works were first heard in their present form at Leipzig church service during the second quarter of the eighteenth century. The motet Lobet den Herrn C Praise the Lord, all ye heathen') has a fully written out accompaniment for organ with traditional doubling of cellos and basses. Ich habe genug, a bass cantata for Candlemas, is one of the few that Bach himself provided with extensive phrase-marks. The prevailing theme of the text expresses a longing for death, and the tranquil beauty of the music is greatly enhanced by a solo oboe. Herz und Mund was revised by Bach so as to be suitable for the Feast of the Visitation, one of the additional numbers being the now famous chorale 'Jesus bleibet meine Freude.' This evening it will be heard in its original scoring with oboes, strings, and trumpet. (Denis Stevens)

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.
