' Catulli Carmina ' : ludi scaenici by Carl Orff
A percussion ensemble
Clifton Helliwell , Frederick Stone
Josephine Lee , Charles Spinks
Conducted by Maurice Miles
Fifth of six programmes
Catulli Carmina (1943) is, like Orff's Carmina Burana, a scenic cantata, in which the chorus is predominant. In an introductory chorus, with piano and percussion accompaniment, youths and maidens praise ' 'eternal love'; but old men ridicule them, ordering the story of Catullus to be enacted as a lesson to them. The action consists of three scenes, in which the chorus sings unaccompanied settings of Catullus's poems while the stage-scene shows Lesbia's unfaithfulness, Catullus's despair, and their separation. Unimpressed, the youths and maidens repeat their chorus in praise of eternal love. D.C. followed by an interlude at 8.0

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.
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

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.
