SHEEP-FARMING in the Australian bush playing the violin to the Governor-General, cruising on a whaler, mutiny, capture by ferocious rebel Maoris-all these were among the lively experiences of the Irish composer of Maritana. He is not to be confused, by the way, with the William Wallace of our own times, composer of the Freebooter Songs, one of which we are shortly to hear. This Wallace was born in 1814 and died just over sixty years ago. He wrote, among other things, half a dozen Operas, but Maritana was the only really successful one.
JUST about 200 years ago Handel became a naturalized Englishman. A month later he produced the opera Scipio, from which we are to hear an Air.
It ran for only thirteen nights. Except for one or two numbers, it was a complete failure.
In the Air Hear me, ye winds and waves, we have a fine example of the force and dignity that
Handel could so well express in song.
CARISSIMI, the famous seventeenth-century writer of Oratorios and Cantatas, presents in this song not the common conception of the triumph of love, but the unusual one of the lover's emphatic renunciation of it, and his outburst of satisfaction at being freed from its power. ORCHESTRA

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.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
