In the early part of Handel's Cantata we find the shepherd Acis at the feet of his beloved Galatea, who first reproaches him for his absence, and then continues with the air:-

'As when the dove laments her love,
All on the naked spray;
When he returns, no more she mourns,
But loves the livelong day.
Billing, cooing,
Panting, wooing,
Melting murmurs fill the grove, Melting murmurs, lasting love.'

Stanford was never happier than when setting songs about his native Ireland and its people. The verses entitled The Fairy Lough come from An Irish Idyll, by Moira O'Neill. The poet dreams of 'a little lough, a dark lough, which lies so high among the heather ... Loughareema! Loughareema!'

THIS early work (it is the Composer's Op. 6) is over forty years old. It is in classical form, in three Movements only. The FIRST is brisk, with a trace of that waltz style which Strauss later used so wonderfully in many of his Operas; the SECOND is the Slow Movement, rather sad ; and the LAST MOVEMENT is both skittish and bold.


Soprano: Kathleen Moor
Pianoforte: Eric Fogg

The Scene is Mrs. Chance's kitchen. Joey, a loutish youth of about seventeen, is sitting by the fire, gazing at the clock and looking very sick. He holds in his hand a doubtful-looking bottle with the cork out.

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.
