HELEN HENSCHEL Folk Songs : Jock o' Hazeldean (Scots)
I will walk with my love (Irish)
THE theme of love and courtship naturally comes into a great many folk songs and old popular ballads.
The wooing of Jock o' Hazeldean is a typical
Scots example of the hearty kind of song. about the love of a bold gallant for a maid. The unwilling girl was to be wed to a rich man ; in th( first three verses his manifold attractions arc described, and the riches she will have as his wife.
But aye she loot the tears doun fa' For Jock o' Hazeldean.
Then, in the last verse, we are told how : —
The kirk was deck'd at morning-tide, The tapers glimmer'd d fair ;
The priest and bridegroom wait the bride,
And dame and knight were there ;
They sought her baith by bower and ha' ;
The ladye was not seen! -
She's o'er the border and awa'
Wi' Jock o' Hazeldean.
The next two songs tell less exciting stories.
The last is simply a vivid little amount of the gay doings at the St. Matthew's Fair, at Bridgwater. It has a warning refrain : —
O master John, do you beware.
And don't go kissing the girls at Bridgwater Fair.


Pianoforte: Edward Isaacs

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.
