THE WIRELESS SINGERS
Conducted by STANFORD ROBINSON
MORLEY, that contemporary and possibly friend of Shakespeaio, set to music some of the poet's songs. Here we have examples of three kinds of music by this leading composer of his day.
The first describes a meeting with a merry maid, in the merry month of May.'
The gay ending runs:-
'Thy wife will be thy master, I trow,
Sing care away, let the world go, Hey lustily all in a row.'
The next song, one of Morley's Canzonets or Little Short Aers to five and six Voices' (1597) is thus strikingly phrased :-
O Grief I even on the bud that fairly flowered
The sun hath lowered.
And at the breast which Love durst never venture,
Bold Death did enter.
Pity, O heavens, that have my love in keeping,
My sighs and weeping.'
The last song is a jolly Ballet-a characteristic of which was the 'fa-la-la' refrain. 'Sing and be merry, for youth won't last,' is its care-free injunction.

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.
