THE CHARLES TRIMEY SEXTET
SIR HUBERT PARRY
(1848-1918) left us no fewer than twelve books of English Lyrics, and many people rank some of these among the classics of song. These three come from the Sixth Set of the Lyrics. The first, a setting of a translation from the Welsh, tells how, when Gwen comes, ' more glorious the sun in heaven appeareth,' ' the tree-tops bow down to earth to greet her,' and ' her loving eyes ... point the way to heaven.'
Next comes a delicate setting of a well-known poem from Thomas Ford
Music of Sundry Kinds (1607), each verse of which ends ' And yet I love her till I die.'
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.'

THE incidental music that
Bizet wrote to Daudet's play of Provençal life is by now very familiar to listeners. It will be recalled that the four pieces in the Second Suite are respectively entitled Pastoral, Intermezzo, Minuet, and Farandolethe last, in the play, being a chorus sung in praise of St. Eloi. It introduces, after the march- like introduction, an old Provencal soug and dance tune.
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.
