"Dixit Dominus" (Vulgate, Psalm 109) - Lalande
As a chorister and later as organist at several Parisian churches Lalande had every opportunity of studying current trends in 17th-century diurdi music. Dixit Dominus, with its complex yet effective arrangement of small and large choirs, is typical of his masterly settings of the psalms.

Part 2
Although Pergolesi was only twenty-six at the time of his death in 1736 his musical output was remarkable both for its quality and variety. In the D major Mass iralianate melodies contrast with noble polyphony and classical elegance and design. Only the Kyrie and Gloria have been set, and these two movements (which date from 1733) have been edited by Edmond Appia from a manuscript in the university library of Geneva. D.S.

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.
