We have produced a Style Guide to help editors follow a standard format when editing a listing. If you are unsure how best to edit this programme please take a moment to read it.
Sung by HERBERT HEYKER (Baritone)
THE poem of Ford's first song is a great favourite, in many settings. Itssimplicity and whole-hearted sincerity are very attractive. His other song is equally charming.
FERRABOSCO'S parents were Italians, but -C he was bom in England. His father was for a time one of Elizabeth's court musicians and a friend of Byrd, and the son became the music tutor of James I's son. Come, my Celia sets words of Ben Jonson-a lover's invitation to his maid to ' prove, while we may, the sweets of love.'
MORLEY'S happy May song is best known in its original form as a Ballet, with the characteristic ' fa-la-la ' refrain.
CAMPIAN'S Follow your saint is an impassioned invocation to his ' sad notes' to ' fall at her flying feet..... And tell the ravishor of my soul I perish for her love.'
DOWLAND'S song tells of the re-awakening of love; the poet begs that it may now never depart again, but live for ever in her eyes, who mayhap but played with love to make its joys more sweet.


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.
