The words of this unaccompanied part-song are a translation, by D.G. Rossetti, of a fine thought of the thirteenth-century Guido Cavalcanti:-
Dishevelled and in tears, go, song of mine,
To break the hardness of the heart of man; Say how his life began
From dust, and in that dust doth sink supine;
Yet, say, the unerring spirit of grief shall guide
His soul, being purified,
To seek its Maker at the heavenly shrine.
Among Parry's most deeply-felt and nobly-wrought choral pieces are the Motets known collectively as Songs of Farewell. Of these we are to hear one - his seven-part setting of Donne's striking words:-
At the round earth's imagined corners blow
Your trumpets, angels, and arise from death, You numberless infinities of souls...
But... let me mourn a space.
For if above all these my sins abound,
'Tis late to ask abundance of Thy grace
When we are there...
Teach me how to repent, for that's as good
As if Thou'dst sealed my pardon with Thy blood.

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.

Welcome to BBC Genome

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.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
