A New England fable: an opera piccola for two singers and four instrumentalists
Words and music by Gail Kubik with members of the London Symphony Orchestra Conducted by the composer
Produced by Maurice Brown
A series of six programmes arranged and introduced by Egon Wellesz
3—Gregorian Melodies (1)
In this programme Dr. Wellesz traces the gradual building-up of the repertory of Gregorian melodies and the simultaneous attempts to abolish the Gailican and Ambrosian chant. Eventually Gregorian chant came to comprise the richest and most varied collection of sacred monody, several examples of which will be heard in this programme.
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
programmes, online etc.
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.
