COMPLETED in 1918, and published in 1922, this piece is inscribed by the composer, ' For Philip Heseltine ,' who is known to listeners also under his composer's name, Peter Warlock. Scored for only wood-winds, two homs and strings, it begins with a fresh, happy melody, given chiefly to the strings in nine parts, with little snatches of tune on the woodwinds breaking in on it. The music changes to a more flowing measure and sinks to very soft tone, and after a moment of sudden strength and energy, returns to the opening melody. At the end it dies away softly and slowly, and the whole short piece is eloquent of its subject, in Deliua* picturesque way.
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.
