Sung by ROGER CLAYSON (Tenor)
Verborgenhcit (Secrecy)
Der Gartner (The Gardener)
Gesang Weylas (Weyla's Song)
Storehenbotschaft (Storks' Message)
These are four more of the settings of poems by Edward Morike. CEORECY , one of the best-known of Wolfs songs, is in the first volume of his settings of poems by Edward Morike. ' Tempt me not, 0 world, again,' is its theme ; 'Let my heart, unspoken, cherish all its rapture, all its pain.'
The Gardener is a light, graceful song in praise of a lovely Princess, who comes riding down the avenue. The gardener covets a remembrance of her-only a feather from the hood that covers her dainty head, and would give her in return all his flowers, for,' he says, they bloom but for thee.' -
Weyla's Song is a mystic vision of a sacred isle shining afar, before whose shrine Kings bend and worship.
The Storks' Message tells of the happy life of a shepherd on the moors, who is contented, and would not change places with a king, if he had the chance. One day two storks come to visit him, and standing on the doorstep solemnly bow. He guesses that they bring him news of a new-born child, and imagines the mother's longing to be with him. He bids the storks tell her he will soon be with her. But stay! Surely there is special significance in there being two of them ! One for each of the twins ? The storks merely nod and curtsy, then fly away.

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.
