Debussy was fond of reproducing on the pianoforte the sound of bells. We have already this week heard two pieces in which such suggestions occur-the Cathedral under the Waves and Pagodas. Here is another of his many subtle conceptions which make an instant appeal to the imagination.
In the other piece we may conjure up a picture of a great stone fountain-pond in a green park, the sun shining on the gently-lapping water, and the graceful goldfish curving their cool way about the basin, and now and again, with a flirt of the tail, darting off in their inconsequent way.

SIR CHARLES STANFORD himself wrote a descriptive note for the first performance of this work, which took place in 1913. 'P has as sub-title The fisherman of Lough Neagh , and what he saw, and bears this verse from The Minstrel Boy
'Land of Song!' said the warrior bard,
Tho' all the world betray thoe, One sword at least thy rights shall guard.
One faithful harp shall praise thee! '
At the end of the work is the line of Tennyson, ' Dark and true and tender is the North.'
After a short, very quiet introduction, the first main tune appears. It is a minor-key Irish fisherman's song that goes to words beginning ' I will raise my sail black, mistfully in the morning.' After this mood has been dwelt upon for a little, the dignified second tune enters softly on the Trumpets, suggesting, so the composer said. the fisherman's vision of the triumph of heroism. This old melody comes from Ulster, and was known in later days as The Death of General Wolfe-fresh words probably being set to it when Wolfe died.
The third tune is that of an old Ulster march.

ORCHESTRA Rhapsody Ko. 4 in D Minor - Stanford

: ARNOLD TROWELL and

RUBIN GOLDMARK (bom in America in 1872) is a nephew of that Goldmark (Carl) whose Overture to The Queen of Sheba, and other music, is fairly frequently broadcast. He was a pupil of Dvorak when that composer was living in America.
In the Rhapsody several Negro tunes are used. In the order of their appearance these are : (1) Nobody knows de trouble I've seen; (2) 0 Peter, go ring a dem bells (basses,below held woodwind chords); (3) 0 religion is a fortune (after the rapid main body of the Rhapsody has got going); (4) Sometimes I feel like a motherless child (Cor Auglais-Alto Oboe. at a slower speed); (5) A few bars of 0, when I come to die (Violoncello) ; (6) an unnamed theme from Tennessee (in the lively part of the piece).








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.
