Quilter's Children's Overture
As in his songs, the same qualities of fresh, natural melody can be heard throughout Quilter's ' Children's Overture '. The nursery rhymes upon which it is based are : ' Boys and Girls, come out to play ' ; ' Upon Paul's steeple stands a tree ' ; ' Dame, get up and bake your pies ' ; ' I saw three ships come sailing by ' ; ' Sing a song of sixpence ' ; ' There was a lady loved a swine ' ; , Over the hills and far away ' ; ' The frog and the crown'; 'A frog he would a-wooing go' ; ' Baa, baa, black sheep ' ; ' Here we go round the mulberry bush ' ; ' Oranges and lemons '. Mendelssohn
If Mendelssohn failed to express the deeper human emotions and lacked the heroic build of a Beethoven, he has earned a place in the sun as an exquisite miniaturist who created with a magic and unrivalled pen the atmosphere of fairyland. And for this alone he deserves immortality. No better example of Mendelssohn's genius for creating the fairy atmosphere can be cited than the Scherzo from A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Jules Massenet (1842-1912) was a distinguished French composer who exercised considerable influence during his day. In addition to a number of operas, which became very popular in France, he wrote a fair quantity of orchestral music, particularly light orchestral suites such as the ' Picturesque scenes '. The most outstanding characteristics of Massenet's music are the grace and charm of his melodic invention and the clarity and effectiveness of his orchestration.

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.
