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.'

: MILITARY BAND CONCERT

SPENCER THOMAS (Tenor)
Louis GODOWSKY (Violin)
THE WIRELESS MILITARY BAND
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
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.

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.
