: The Foundations of Music

A RECITAL OF SONGS BY PURCELL
Sung by HERBERT HEYNER (Baritone)
THE actual date and place of the birth of our great English composer have never been quite definitely fixed; all that one can say certainly is that Purcell was born in 1658 or 1659 in London, and that he died there in 1695. Nor can we say with any certainty when many of his greatest works were produced, and bad it not been for the industry and enthusiasm of tho Purcell Society, comparatively few of the works themselves would be known to us today. As it is, we possess a great store of music, grave and gay, for almost every known combination of voices and instruments, ranging from opera to quite small pieces.
Some of his songs are known to every concertgoer, almost to every listener, by now, best of all possibly 'When I am laid in earth,' the beautiful lament which Dido sings in the opera Dido and Aeneas, one of the very earliest of our English operas. Many of the songs by him which we have today are taken from operas or other pieces originally written for the stage. Some of these were plays with music, incidental music and songs, rather than operas in the modern sense. Sometimes the singing parts had no connection with the course of the drama, and very little relation to the action of the piece.
Other songs come from Odes and Festival pieces composed for special occasions, and some belong to his church music.

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.
