by Alan Harverson on the medieval organ in the Museum at Malmo, Sweden
The organ on which Alan Harverson recorded this programme originally belonged to the church of St. Peter in Malmo. Documents show that it was in use in the sixteenth century, and the main parts are believed to date from the end of the fifteenth century. In 1937 the organ was acquired by Malmo Museum from a church to which it had been sold in 1799, and it has since been extensively restored.

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.
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
programmes, online etc.
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.
