: THE FOUNDATIONS OF MUSIC

SCHUBERT'S SONGS
Sung by HELEN HENSCHEL (Soprano)
Die Vogel (The Bird)
Mignon's Song : Nur wer dio Sehnsucht kennt
(Only the longing heart knows)
Der Wachtelsehlag (The Quail Cry)
Im Abendroth (At Sunset)
Der Musensohn (The Son of the Muses)
IN Die Vogel the voice suggests the free swoop and curve of the bird, and contrasts its care-free life with the anxieties and narrowing cares of men.
Mignon's Song, from Goethe's Wilkelm Meister , is well known in settings by various composers, Tchaikovsky's being the most commonly sung of all. 'Only the longing heart can know my grief, far from the loved one,' is its burden.
In Der Wachtelschlag the call of the quail is fancifully likened to a voice crying ' Fear God,' ' Love God.' The listener is enjoined, as he surveys the rich fruits of the earth, to ' Praise God ' and, whenever he stands in terror, to ' Pray to God.' Always he is to ' Trust in God,' who ever holds him in His care.
Im Abendroth is an evening meditation on the loveliness of God's world, that ca!ms the soul and fills it with the assurance of His presence.
Der Musensohn is a lively lad who pipes for any who will hearken.

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.
