(From Birmingham)
Conducted by FRANK CANTELL
GADE was a Dane, whose early work found favour in Mendelssohn's eyes. When Gade was twenty-six, Mendelssohn conducted his first Symphony at Leipzig, and wrote the young man a fine letter of congratulation.
Gade was fond of reading the poems and legends attributed to the heroic poet Ossian, and such works as this Overture embody his impressions of those great doings in the days of old about which he had read.
The Overture, his Op. 1, was written for a competition organized in his native Copenhagen, of which Spohr was one of the judges. It was
Gade's success in this composition that paved the way for his studying in Leipzig.
SAMUEL SAUL (Baritone)
THESE come from
Parry's Sixth Set' of English Lyrics. The first, a setting of a translation from the Welsh, tells how, when Gwcn comes,
' more glorious the sun in heaven appeareth,' ' tho tree-tops bow down to earth to greet her,' and' her loving eyes ... point the way to heaven.'
The second, entitled A Lover's Garland, is a graceful song with verses from the Greek, by that famous lyric-writer, Alfred Perceval Graves — 'I'm weaving sweet violets ... Frail narcissus ... for Heliodora's brow.'
Love is a bable is full of brisk wit. Its burden is that it passes the wit of man to make head or tail of love. ' No man is able to say 'tis this or 'tis that.' What, then, shall we do with the fickle sprite ? Hang him, and so let him go!'

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.
