' 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

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.
