: Mr. BASIL MAINE:

' Next Week's Broadcast Music '

: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC,

MODERN ENGLISH SONGS
Sung by JOHN THORNE (Baritone) Miscellaneous Songs:
BAX'S song is one of a set of five Irish pieces. The words of this one (by Joseph Campbell ) tell of the piper whose song seemed a part of the hills' melancholy. The accompaniment gives us a suggestion of the pipe'splaintive music.
Scott has taken a poem of Dowson, in villanelle form-nineteen lines with but two rhymes. The poet tells how, to make his tribute, he took ' her dainty eyes as well as silken tendrils of her hair,' ' her voice, a silver bell,' ' her whiteness virginal,' and ' stole her laugh most musical.'
The last song is a modern setting of those favouritelines from Tennyson's Maud, concerning an earlier setting of which (Balfe's) the poet said that the composer had made all the notes go up where lie (Tennyson) wanted them to go down, and down where lie wanted them to go up. Whether the listener agrees with that verdict on Balfe or not, he is pretty sure to admire the spirit of Somervell's music, its exhilaration and the rhapsodical note of the lover's urgent plea.

: An Eye-witness Account of the International Horse Show by Lieut.-Col. M. F. McTAGGART

THE International Horse Show is always a feast of delights for anybody who enjoys seeing fine horses and fine riding of the military school. This year's Show is particularly interesting in that it will be the occasion of the first appearance in England of the men and horses of the Imperial Riding School of Vienna. This school-one of the few relics of Imperial Austria that survives-has been in existence for over three centuries, and the breed has been maintained with extraordinary success all that time.
The men are trained for a minimum of ten years, and the horses themselves receive a training unparalleled in any other part of the world. Lieut.-Col. MeTaggart who broadcast a talk on the Show last year, is one of the laading authorities on horses, and he has personal experience of the Vienna School.

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.
