The shorter Piano pieces of Grieg are among the most popular music in existence.
His songs, of which there are nearly a hundred-and-fifty, are not so well known ; yet they deserve equal popularity.
Morning Dew, written when Grieg was twenty, is a song of sentiment, in which a lover declares that he wants no light save that from the beloved's eyes.
The Old Song tells a story of an old King who took a young wife. She was loved also by her page. The song only hints at the tragedy that came about - 'both were doomed to perish, they loved one another so.' The First Meeting recalls the joy of love's first rapture.
The Cradle Song is sung by a father to his motherless babe.
In The First Primrose the flower is an offering to a ' lovely child of Spring.'
I love thee is perhaps the best-known of all Grieg's vocal pieces. The music is not by any means most characteristic of him, but the emotional life of the brief song is intense.

WORCESTERSHIRE, Somersetshire and Cumberland have already had their turn in this series of talks, arranged by Mr. E. le Breton Martin , and designed to bring to the London microphone the veritable accents and dialects of those parts of the country in which standardization has not yet killed the native speech. Now comes Devonshire, the sturdy Western county that proudly cherishes its own dialect. Most listeners have heard versions of it frequently on the stage, but they should bear in mind that tonight's broadcast will be giving them no imitation, however artful, but the real thing.
