: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

MODERN ENGLISH Songs
Sung by JOHN THORNE (Baritone)
Songs by Vaughan Williams
The Vagabond
Silent Noon
The Water Mill
RALPH VAUGHAN WILLIAMS was born at
Down Ampney, in Gloucestershire, in 1872. Many English people regard him as one of the greatest living composers, and this view has some support outside Britain.
Of the three songs here chosen, the first two are comparatively early composition. The Vagabond shares with Linden Lea the greatest popularity that Vaughan Williams has achieved. It is also surely one of the two or three finest ' tramp ' songs ever written. It is one of seven settings from R. L. Stevenson 's ' Songs of Travel.'
Silent Noon (from settings from D. G. Rossetti 's
'The House of Life') is in very different style and spirit-a phase which, in fact, Vaughan Williams seems to have long left behind him. It is a song of love and Nature mingled.
The Water Mill, one of Vaughan Williams 's latest songs, is enough answer to anyone who suspects him of any clumsiness or heaviness. It ripples along, easily and inconsequently, telling of a mill, an ancient one, brown with rain, and dry with sun,' of the whirring wheel and roaring waters, of the miller's tabby eat, of his wife and 'eldest girl,' and of the day's round.

: The British Women's Symphony Orchestra

Conducted by Dr. MALCOLM SARGENT
An Introductory Talk by Dame ETHEL SMYTH
ONE thing noticeable all through the Symphony is that Mozart has used in it no Drums or any of the heavier brass instruments.
Of its four Movements, the First is quick and bustling-full of restless energy . and dramatic fire, with an under-current of anxiety and mystery running through it.
The Second Movement comes as a beautiful, restful relief after the agitation of the First.
The Third Movement is a cheerful, rather ceremonious Minuet.
The Fourth Movement is the sweeping, rushing Finale, whose speed never slackens, though there are moments of tranquillity.

: 'I REMEMBER '

The Rt. Hon. ARTHUR PONSONBY , M.P.: ' Recollections of Sir Henry Campbell -
Bannerman'
A LTHOUGH he was Prime Minister
A from 1906 to 1908, Sir Henry Campbell - Bannerman is perhaps the least-known politician of modern times. The tradition of his personal amiability and habitual modesty survives, but even when ' C.-B. ' was a leading figure in the political world he remained something of an enigma. Mr. Arthur Ponsonby was his Principal Private Secretary throughout his premiership, and in this evening's talk he will be able to throw some new light upon the character of his former chief.

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.
