A study of Richard Crashaw 's poetic style by T. 0. Beachcroft
The poems read by Marius Goring , Alan Wheatley Diana Maddox , Frank Duncan
Produced by Douglas Cleverdon
This programme is not intended to dramatise the life story of Richard Crashaw (c. 1612-1649), nor to show the complete range of his poetry, secular and religious. It is a presentation of a number of his poems grouped round a central idea. Its aim is to use broadcasting to bring out a special relationship between Crashaw's elaborate baroque style and sound. The title is ftaken from one of the best known of his secular poems.

William Bergsma, who was born in California in 1921, studied under Howard Hanson at the Eastman School of Alusic; in 1945 he was awarded a grant given by the National Institute of Arts and Letters for ' outstanding achievement.' Descendant of a long line of Italian musicians, Norman Dello Joio was born in 1913 in New York; he has studied with Hindemith, and, like Bergsma, has won a number of prizes. Charles Jones settled in New York in 1928 after spend- ' ing the first eighteen years of his life in Canada; among the musicians to whom he is most indebted, he says, are Aa.ron Copland and Milhaud.

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.
