: STRAUSS'S SONGS

Sung by VIVIENNE CHATTERTON
Ich trage meine Minne (I bear my Love in Silence), Op. 32
Befreit (Freed), Op. 39
0 Siisser Mai (0 Lovely May), Op. 32
Wiegenlied (Cradle Song), Op. 41
ICH tragc meine Minne is unlike most of Stiauss's love-songs. It is simple-minded music, with a bright, 'clear melody. The first verse (which recurs at the end) mighfhave been taken from a volume of German folk-songs.
Befreit is a song of consolation to one who is bound for the ' land o' the leal,' whither the other is soon to follow. The music is finely elaborated and contains some passages of striking harmonic texture.
O Siisser Mai - 'O sweet May, bless us when wo confess our love'-is a modern interpretation of tho spirit, and much of the musical style, of Mendelssohn's, Songs Without Words.' The running accompaniment takes some liberties that would be quite out of the question in Mendelssohn's day. and so (toes tho voice part, but nevertheless there is a resemblance.
Wiegenlied has the essentials of a typical lullaby, viz., the usual words, a rocking accompaniment and a suggestion of artistic scarcity.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
