Part 1
This is the last of the series of concerts including litanies and vespers by Mozart. There will be another performance tomorrow evening at 9.0.
Mozart wrote music for the Serivce of Vespers on two occasions, in 1779 and in 1780, both at Salzburg: the Vesperae solennes de Confessore belongs to the second date. Its title indicates rhat it wee intended for use on one of the saints' days, since on his own day a saint may act as confessor and mediator. There are six sections. The first five, each a sotting of a separate psalm, are Dixit Dominus, Confilebor, Bealus vir, Laudate pueri, and Laudate Dominum (well known as a separate aria). The last section is a setting of the Magnificat. D.C.

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.
