: THE SONGS OF RICHARD STRAUSS

Sung by JOHN ARMSTRONG (Tenor)
Heimkehr (Homecoming), Op. 15, No. 5
In goldener Fiille (In golden abundance), Op. 49,
No. 2 '
Allerseelen (All Souls' Day), Op. 10, No. 8
Wie sollten wir geheim sie halten (How shall we keep our secret), Op. 19, No. 4
HEIMKEHR is the song of one who, coming home at evening time, expresses his joy at the happy prospect of reunion with a loved ona.
In the second song a lover has a vision of life with his sweetheart as a glorious progress ; with her. even in death the vision will not fade : the glory will spread through all eternity.
Allerseelen, quiet and flowing, is a song of tender remembrance ; ' wie einst in Mai' (' as once in May ') is the refrain to each verse.
Wie sollten is a song of urging, on the old, old theme. ' Out with it-we love each other.' etc. The triplet figure in the accompaniment adds a spur to the lover's persuasion.

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.
