THE TEMPLARS (Madrigals)
RUDOLF DOLMETSCH (Harpsichord)
DR. JOHN BULL at the age of about twenty became organist of Hereford Cathedral, and three years later a member of the Chapel Royal. Although his position in the world of music was a very eminent one, and he was a Doctor of Music both of Cambridge and of Oxford, in 1591 his circumstances were so bad that he had to petition Queen Elizabeth ' to relieve his great poverty, which altogether hinders his studies.' Ho survived the Queen and continued to hold his foremost position in the next reign, and his fame spread to other parts of Europe, too. Ho left this country about 1613, and in 1617became organist of Antwerp Cathedral. He died there, and is buried on the south sido of Notre Dame, in the city which was also his birthplace.
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.
