: FRENCH SONGS

Sung by HELEN HENSCHEL
S.B. from Newcastle
Old French Songs :
OLD popular songs of France were cast in many different styles. There were narrative songs, satirical songs, pastorals and love ballads, legends of the saints, and a great many other varieties.
Prominent among collectors of those old songs are Weckerlin and Tiersot. The former's work is to-night represented by his arrangement of Paris est au Roi, an eighteenth century Minuet tune. Weckerlin began life as a chemist. Later he became a Professor of Singing, and Librarian at the Conservatoire.
A KINGLY Composer figures in to-night's programme. In earlier days monarchs not infrequently amused themselves with composition. Our own Henry VIII found time, among his many other activities, to write Motets and some capital songs. Louis XIII 's song is a ' Romance.' The title designates one of the earliest and most charming of the characteristic French song styles, in which the subject was the tender sentiments of love. Such songs, invented by the Troubadours, seven or eight hundred years ago. were never long out of favour, and Louis XIII (1601-1643), whose music-master was a famous composer of ' Romances,' wrote a number of such pieces.

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.
